Children are Selling Themselves in the New Frontier-Fictional Economy...Should We Care? 

       Summer camps for middle-class American children where they learn to  swim and ride ponies and identify different cloud types and generally get in touch with nature are so last century, so yester-year’s economy.  That’s why the traditional summer camp has got some new competition.  This is the era of the shameless plug and the humble brag, Instagram celebrities, social media influencers and a president who suffers from Twitterhoea.  The top-earning YouTube star is a cute 7-year-old boy named Ryan who reviews toys.  His channel earned US$22 million in 2018.  Who cares about ponies and cumulus clouds and learning to read a compass when kids need much more necessary skills to navigate this new world we’re living in.  They could be earning ungodly sums of money.  Enter stage right, the entrepreneurial camp!        
       With plans to begin offering programs for kids as young as four (yes, four-years-old!), some of these entrepreneurial camp providers, according to Brendan O’Connor’s article, “Capitalism Camp for Kids,” are already supplying  kids of eight-years-old and up, summer skills courses where they “learn how to monetize their hobbies, interview local corporate executives and shoot YouTube commercials for their prospective businesses.”
