Short The Hilltop Children’s Center

by Mr Juggles

I'm from space, dude, from SPACEOr at least short the kids graduating from this school. Their teachers have banned Legos on the grounds that they promote capitalistic behavior. These kids are going to have no clue when they graduate when they have to enter the real world which happens to be mostly capitalistic. And every child economy needs lego exchange, well defined lego property rights and functioning lego markets if it ever hopes to experience sustainable growth.

From the article Why We Banned Legos:

[The children playing with Legos] turned their attention to complex negotiations among themselves about what sorts of structures to build, whether these ought to be primarily privately owned or collectively used, and how “cool pieces” would be distributed and protected. These negotiations gave rise to heated conflict and to insightful conversation. Into their coffee shops and houses, the children were building their assumptions about ownership and the social power it conveys — assumptions that mirrored those of a class-based, capitalist society — a society that we teachers believe to be unjust and oppressive.

Recommendation: Short the Hilltop Children’s Center ETF, in size. For maximum exposure to this trade, travel to Seattle and barter directly with the children. Initial research suggests that 1 snack pack can be turned into 4 Ho-Ho’s and 3 apples can be arbitraged for a bag of Doritos AND 6 gummi worms. Ridiculous.
