What job did you have at Exchange City? For those of you that grew up in the 80s and 90s in the KC Metro area you know exactly what I am talking about. Exchange City was a model of a real city that every school in the area visited for an annual field trip around the fifth grade. Everyone was assigned jobs, and you worked those jobs for fake currency you could spend at various shops in Exchange City to learn about the soul-crushing reality of our capitalist system. Oh, and one person got to be the DJ at the radio station!
Ewing Kauffman, the founder and longtime owner of the Royals, was a financial supporter of Exchange City for many years, which should be no surprise considering how much he supported teaching young people about entrepreneurship. I wonder if he was the first person to utter the phrase, "Keep off the grass!”
