* Suzette Grady of ''Webcomic/{{Precocious}}'' expanded 'Blame Jacob' (a merchandise slogan based on blaming one of her classmates for ''all the world's ills'') into a multinational corporation, including shady ties in the People's Republic of China for manufacturing. She does at least mention the multiple levels of corruption, bribery, and other shady tactics that she needs in order to keep control.

* There are several in the ''Grantville Gazette'' short stories of the Literature/SixteenThirtyTwo novels, though the most notable (The Higgins Sewing Machine Company) hired some adults to handle the high level business decisions once they actually had a product that was ready for sale. Other businesses started by school children in Grantville included the sale of pipes, mushrooms, and cheese (the kids who ran the latter industry ended up becoming ''their parent's landlord'').

** Another show they watch is "Supreme Courtney," about a Tween girl on the Supreme Court.
