Ingenuity and investment ventures are alive and well in the economy now. This courageous enthusiasm encourages adults of all ages. Even the youngest entrepreneurs have caught investment fever.
A new company, EHC Investment, Ltd, is a fine example of the new generation. Fifth graders have joined in this somewhat shaky scheme to allow the four members gain wealth, learn participation skills, and eventually experience a dawning of understanding.
My gr-daughter is the CEO/CFO of this new company. She explained the ideology: She and three other students earn tickets and fake class money throughout the day. All deposit these earnings in an official-looking box which my gr-daughter (CEO/CFO) takes home after school.
There she counts out the earnings into four stacks, each one receiving equal amounts. An odd number leaving only one ticket left remains in the box until the next day. She is honest to a fault.
I think one boy already knows that his measly three tickets means he will rake in fifteen tickets on the next day.
It’s all good, right?
We will see what happens next week.
|It's all in numbers.|
