Gibbs, Mary S., Ed.; And Others, Eds.
Volume II of a two-part series related to family finance education provides materials for study and discussion in the 1968 workshop. In Part I, members of the advisory council present their viewpoints concerning an interdisciplinary approach to education in family finance. Part II presents basic and current information related to principal areas of money management--individuals as consumers; decision making; budgets; selecting and financing the home; installment buying; life, health, unemployment, and old age insurance; credit unions; the stock market; and estate planning. Part III covers field trips made in 1966 and 1967 to eight financial institutions in Indianapolis and Terre Haute. Based on these trips, information is presented on consumer finance industry, life insurance, and handling financial transactions. Part IV, on educational implications, covers new dimensions in consumer education, the right to consume equitably, the stock market, action research, and a plan for conducting classroom research.
