How to Buy Goods and Services.
Farmer, Beckwood M.
This module is one of a set of seven prepared in conjunction with the title I "Project to Train Volunteer Leaders to Conduct Consumer Education Courses." It is designed to be a basic text for use in making a one-hour presentation on how to buy goods and services. An accompanying slide set is keyed to the text of the module. (An illustration of each slide is provided.) Topics in the module include the fundamentals of economics which affect consumers in the marketplace; the role of the government in the operation of our economic system; and general consumer guidelines for buying food, cars and car services, television and related repair services, retail goods, mail order goods, real estate, contractual services, credit, furniture, and rental or leased housing. A multiple-choice/true-false quiz (with answers), discussion questions, and a bibliography are appended. (CT)
