To the commentators at Common Dreams, upscale summer camps sponsored by financial service companies are the "training ground for the future 1%."  As if the less posh predecessors in the north woods, often served by chartered camp trains, didn't offer lots of networking opportunities and social climbing.

Perhaps personal finance, financial literacy, and prenuptial agreements have replaced sailing or archery as camp activities because the prep schools have taken such things out of their curriculum in favor of more trendy subjects.

Such life-management skills are properly part of the curriculum of the common schools, which, themselves, have an unenviable track record of rendering their graduates unemployable.
