One day this summer, to occupy our two boys and maybe teach them something about money, my wife and I set up a sidewalk lemonade stand. She put out a chipped red table that had been hers as a girl and helped our older son, who’s 5, carefully letter “LEMONADE” and “50¢” onto construction paper.

President Jimmy Carter did
