If you travel through parts of America you can see a history of towns that were suddenly bypassed when the railroad came through, or when Eisenhower built the interstates. Communities and the people in them went from thriving to destitute because the flow of information, goods and services was suddenly rerouted around them. They were left behind. This fact was ever present in the first term of the Clinton Administration as new technology inspired legislation that redirected the flow of information and hence the resulting flow of capital goods and services to 63,000 American communities.

Preparing kids for life: Q&A with Catherine Hutton Markwell, CEO of BizWorld
In my experience as mother to one child, sister to six, and aunt to many, I have found that most kids have a natural desire to set up shop. Not out of greed, but because it's just kind of cool to do something fun and earn some pocket change in the process. I firmly believe that linking creativity and pleasure with work early on is critical. Enter Catherine Hutton Markwell. She is the CEO of The BizWorld Foundation , an education non-profit that she re-launched in 2003 with Tim Draper, founder and Chairman. To date, BizWorld has inspired over 250,000 children worldwide through entrepreneurship, business and financial programs. market trends, news research and surveys resources
