Description
Episode Description
Submitted episode, "A Matter of Choice," is Lesson One of Semester Two of the series. "Teenagers in buying situations in various shops and stores: illustrate the impact youthful consumers have on our economy. Film of a bottling plant, garbage dumps, and household garbage is used to emphasize that our choices as consumers produce much waste that affects the health and economy of the individual and the whole community."--accompanying description.
Series Description
"'Dollar Data' is a series of 33, 20 minute video tape lessons on consumer economics for the secondary student. These lessons present money as a resource to be used to achieve goals, as a means to an end, rather than an end itself. Because our economic system relies on individual choice in the market place, emphasis is placed on the responsibility of the individual to be informed so as to make choices that will give him the greatest satisfaction from the use of his resources, as well as protect his rights as a consumer and a citizen. The philosophy of 'Dollar Data' is not to present the 'right' or 'wrong' way to use resources, but to start the process of thinking more clearly and logically about the uses to which a person's resources may be put."--1972 Peabody Awards entry form.
