Rights and Responsibilities in the Marketplace.
Garman, G. Thomas
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 rights and responsibilities in the marketplace. Topics include the six basic rights of consumers; responsibilities of consumers, especially as they relate to rights; the roles of business, the federal government, and consumers as they interact in the functioning of the American marketplace; important historical events in the consumer movement through the decade of "consumerism"; six proposals to strengthen the power of consumers; and the impact of one's economic ideology upon interpretation of consumer issues. An accompanying slide set is keyed to the text of the module. (An illustration of each slide is provided). Also included is an information sheet on recent consumer protection legislation and rulings, a multiple-choice quiz, discussion questions, and a bibliography. (CT)
