They can learn to recognize the forces that affect their spending and to make wise economic decisions. This unit is the beginning of a lifelong learning process. Its focus is on helping students build awareness of market forces and develop skills that enable them to ask the right questions, analyze their motivations, and recognize what options are available.Teaching students how to be better consumers just got easier.
