    Cute story, but had me thinking about the kids that have run afoul of the law when setting up lemon aid stands! I could see a government regulator questioning child labor laws, or even if the young girl has the required permits and qualifications to be handing out such royal edicts!

    Party planners as jobs of the future! Wow, Professor Mead is either nuts or one of the most far sighted public intellectuals around. Only time will tell.

  • Do they moonlight as princess strippers?

    WRM, innovation and creativity via Princesses for hire may be one response to changing social patterns – scaling up may require more though.

  • “The future belongs to those who are creative . . .”

    That’s nice. What about the rest?

  • Christ. Why don’t we just bring back slavery already. We are obviously headed that way.

    These are the posts that try men’s souls. I was hoping, still hope, that Via Meadia is having us on with this one, proceeding from its usual sublime of promoting adaption to the requirements of the new economy to the ridiculous of demonstrating that PT Barnum’s observation iis as true now as ever. As other commenters have noted, the handful of shrewd opportunists out there who can discover ever new ways of parting fools from their money are no models for the tens of millions currently unemployed and propping up the necrotic blue state model in America 2013. Perhaps Via Meadia is too young to remember the Pet Rock–another example of “creative people who can figure out what the people want and give it to them” from a bygone era. Is that the future Via Meadia is seriously urging on us–the Pet Rock Model?

  • Why is it a good thing that we have more party princesses than manufacturing jobs, again?
