Young Investors Wall Street Camp
Like many who grew up in the 1980's, my favorite television character was Alex P. Keaton, the economics-obsessed kid from the classic show "Family Ties." I couldn't help but think of Alex when I heard that the Future Investor Clubs of America is offering the Young Investors Wall Street Camp at Rice University. No doubt Alex would have relished an opportunity to "enjoy financial intelligence training, video and board games, field trips to local financial districts, and guest speakers from some of America's largest corporations." The camp's website (http://www.futureinvestorsclub.com/camps-houston.cfm) says the kids will get a camp T-shirt. I couldn't find any mention of one of Alex's trademark argyle sweaters, however.
