Wise Investments


New York, NY : The Bull at NY stock exchange
Bull!
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.

    1. Oh, she has had several ideas. It was simpler in first grade. They playground teams/clubs, Vampires, Fairies, and more. It was tag and try to convert members to your team/club.

  5. Interesting. So, they're sharing their "earnings"? Interesting to see how this plays out.

    1. She already has her own spa, with her younger sister as an employee. Cheap, really cheap. But, she garnered $13 last year, which she spent to buy Christmas presents for her family. ;)

  8. I am very glad to read about this. My kids paid attention to my hubby's instruction, and are all fiscally responsible, with good saving habits. My son, who is 23, writes a blog (not ofte, but well) called The Gradual Millionaire. We used to have them pick a stock and follow its growth daily for weeks It was a fantasy game (no real money) until the end. Winner got 10 bucks and a Happy Meal out with us. Fun investment of our time.
