An outstanding introduction to entrepreneurship. Stresses how a person can earn a profit in business while maintaining the highest possible standards of honesty and integrity. Includes a self-test to help the reader determine how enterprising he/she really is, as well as an excellent chapter on “Capitalism and Other Isms” that clearly defines capitalism, democratic socialism, socialism, and communism. Although written with young people in mind, many adults will benefit by reading this book, especially the section which was written specifically for parents and teachers. Highly recommended. Quality paper, 192 pages, 8.5 x 5.5 inches. Ages 10 up.

“Entrepreneurs, even young entrepreneurs, know that every new day is a new challenge. They know that learning must go on throughout life. They know that learning is not just something you do in school. They know that you do it every day, with every experience, if you are alert and thoughtful. They know that the ability to think includes the ability to change, to adapt, to use new tools and information. Change, which may seem such a threat and a danger to some people, will just seem a challenge and an opportunity to the entrepreneur.” Karl Hess, author



Comments About This and the Previous Edition of Capitalism for Kids

Capitalism for Kids (by Richard J. Maybury, author of the “Uncle Eric” series of books)
“Capitalism for Kids” is an outstanding introduction to entrepreneurship. Author Karl Hess stresses how a person can earn a profit in business while maintaining the highest possible standards of honesty and integrity. He provides a self-test to determine how enterprising the reader really is. His excellent chapter on ‘Capitalism and Other Isms’ clearly defines capitalism, democratic socialism, socialism, and communism. Although written with young people in mind, many adults will benefit by reading “Capitalism for Kids” as well. I highly recommend this book.

Capitalism for Kids (by Mary Pride, The Teaching Home)
...definitely the best book I have ever seen directed to children on the theory of how to go into business for yourself... this book is really absorbing reading.

Capitalism for Kids (by Douglas Casey, author of “Investing In Crisis”)
I don’t want to just half-heartedly recommend this book among thousands of others out there that are worth reading. I want to urge you, as strongly and sincerely as possible, to buy it and read it first for yourself. Only then give it to a kid you like. Karl’s book crystallizes thoughts that most people have had, but haven’t thought out fully. It washes away the foundations upon which fears and guilt are constructed over a lifetime; it replaces them with ideas you always believed in intuitively but weren’t quite sure how to defend. This book is really great. Make sure it is available to your kids and yourself.
