WHEALER-LEA ACT: This was a major amendment to the Federal Trade Commission Act, passed in 1938, that gave powers to the Federal Trade Commission to investigate unfair and deceptive business practices and to prevent false advertising. The Whealer-Lea Act was a major step in moving the Federal Trade Commission into its current role as more of a consumer protection agency than a monopoly buster.

WHITE GULLIBON
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who sees only the good in other people, because people are good. Family and friends use your kitchen to store lawn equipment. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time watching the shopping channel looking to buy either a desktop calendar with all federal and state holidays highlighted or a half-dozen helium filled balloons. Be on the lookout for mail order catalogs with hidden messages. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter N, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 150291. Your preferred shopping venue is television shopping channels. Your special symbol is the minus sign (-).


Is this You?

As a White Gullibon, you are extremely trusting but somewhat impressionable, seeing only the good in other people. You tend to be a bit naive in the wily ways of the marketplace and thus are often exploited by others, especially the Reg Aggressorine. Like it or not, you are the poster child for the phrase "let the buyer beware." You are empathetic to the plight of others, often to your own detriment.


This isn't me! What am I?
M2

The medium-range monetary aggregate for the U.S. economy containing the combination of M1 (currency and checkable deposits) and short-term, small denomination near monies. M2 contains financial assets that either function directly as money for the U.S. economy or can be easily and quickly converted into money. The near monies added to M1 to derive M2 include savings deposits, certificates of deposit, money market deposits, and money market mutual funds. M2 is one of three monetary aggregates tracked and reported by the Federal Reserve System. The other two are designated M1 and M3.

A Random Walk Through Some ECONOMIC STATISTICS

A pedestrian must always be on guard during any economic excursion, especially when passing the Sylvester J. Peabody Federal Office Building here in Shady Valley. You never know when a window will burst open sending a barrage of glass slivers and economic statistics haphazardly into the street. This is usually followed by a pointy-headed economist who pokes his pointy head through the remaining shards of glass to adamantly declare that there's absolutely, positively NO RECESSION! But he'll recheck the numbers just in case there really is one. WATCH OUT! DUCK!

Potato chips were invented in 1853 by a irritated chef repeatedly seeking to appease the hard to please Cornelius Vanderbilt who demanded french fried potatoes that were thinner and crisper than normal.
"Good humor is a tonic for mind and body. It is the best antidote for anxiety and depression. It is a business asset. It attracts and keeps friends. It lightens human burdens. It is the direct route to serenity and contentment."
