Capitalism for Kids: Growing Up to Be Your Own Boss
A great introductory offering on economics from Bluestocking Press. Author Karl Hess does a good job of explaining the differences between capitalism, socialism, and communism, stressing the advantages of capitalism over the others. Hess also sings the praises of the entrepreneur and encourages the reader to consider having his own business, no matter what his age. Chapters cover money, personality, work, family business, investing, volunteering your time, education, and legal considerations. I appreciated the final chapter, words of wisdom from some highly successful entrepreneurs. A five-page resource section encourages the young capitalist to take the next step. 190 pgs.
