Would parents be willing to pay you to teach that to their children?

No.

Would a young person of high school age be willing to work to pay your tuition?

No.

Don't fantasize about a school you will never have unless you can get some government to subsidize you and capture some students for you.

It's a shame, Girl Wonder's bachelor's degree in economics was a huge waste of money as it is no more valuable than trash.  How many more worthless degrees in economics is being churned out by our fine institutions of learning?

If you're going to be a fan of ol Milty, then look up where he's quoted as saying that greed is good.

edit: Here Rubes, you'd never find it yourself.

Self interest is what motivates people to work and invent and innovate. Making profit illegal is what prevents socialism/communism from working, which is why even China finally legalized profit.

"Greed" is what is driving the Chinese economy to finally become somewhat productive.

So? There is a downside to almost everything.

If you want to go into the wilderness and live in a cave, go. You will, over time, discover many downsides.

Parents?
So therm, now we know why you're a libertarian of a sort. It's your resentment of authority.
I wish I knew if that was warranted because of your parents' personalities or you got it somewhere else?
