Why I Wrote Bedtime Stories About Capitalism

“OK child. Will it be “The Three Bears,” “Hansel and Gretel” or a bedtime story about Capitalism?” Chances are your kid won’t opt for an economic lesson simmering in free enterprise overtones as a prelude to dreamland. Nonetheless, if a parent wants to guide a young person down a certain philosophical path, it’s never too early to consider doing it with non-traditional stories that supplement the bedtime classics.

Illustrated fictions are time tested, fun tools in a parent’s bag of moral wisdom for teaching foundational ideas ranging from basic hygiene to playmate etiquette, to the depravity of stealing and lying.

Years ago, I decided to join this worthy tradition by writing stories that clearly and proudly teach the morality of Capitalism through simple, fun fiction. If others are writing tales for kids about Capitalism, I hope they’ll consider me an ally. If I’m the first, hooray, but I warmly welcome others and hope not to be the last.
