REAL PURCHASING POWER: The ability to acquire wants-and-needs satisfying goods and services with income or money. The real purchasing power of income or money depends on the prices of the goods and services. If the price level, for example, doubles, then a given amount of money can purchase half as many goods and services.

YELLOW CHIPPEROON
Your compete MICRO*scope for today

You are the type of person who has an extensive catalog of shopping dreams which you consciously program into your subconscious before going to sleep at night. Family and friends worry that you will die penniless in a room full of unopened boxes, but with a smile on your face. Today, you are likely to spend a great deal of time watching the shopping channel wanting to buy either a rechargeable battery for your computer or shoe laces for your snow boots. Be on the lookout for letters from the Internal Revenue Service. You should consider shopping at stores or businesses beginning with the letter P, but do not buy any products with a serial number or product code containing the number 541944. Your preferred shopping venue is shopping malls. Your special symbol is the asterisk (*).


Is this You?

As a Yellow Chipperoon, you are happy, happy, happy. You enjoy everything about life and about shopping. You love shopping. You love buying. You love spending. You love to compare products and prices. You love the crowds. You love chatting with the store clerks. You love every bit of the buying process. Nothing dissuades you from having a good time shopping, whether you're buying a box of facial tissues or a new house. Does it get any better than spending an afternoon at the shopping mall? No way!


This isn't me! What am I?

Scraping Up The POLLUTION

One of Shady Valley's featured factories is Mona Mallard's Duct Tape Industries. It's the world's leading producer of duct tape -- that shiny, seemingly omnipresent, cloth-like tape that's used for everything EXCEPT ventilation ducts. Mona Mallard's Duct Tape Industries also employs thousands of voting, taxpaying Shady Valley residents. The amount of campaign money, legal and otherwise, contributed by Mona Mallard herself to Shady Valley politicians is, well, incalculable. All of this means that our little pedestrian exploration through the backlot dumping ground of Mona Mallard's Duct Tape Industries main production plant puts us on very, VERY sensitive turf. The reason, of course, is that the duct tape plant has been discarding sticky, toxic, gooey junk onto the ground. This is a potentially hazardous situation, not only because this sticky, toxic, gooey junk appears to be leaking into the Shady Valley River, but because a Mona Mallard's Duct Tape Industries security guard is headed in our direction. Rather than confront this guard, I suggest we spend our time exploring the problems of pollution. RUN!

Much of the $15 million used by the United States to finance the Louisiana Purchase from France was borrowed from European banks.
"Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the thing you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not; it is the first lesson that ought to be learned; and however early a man's training begins, it is probably the last lesson that he learns thoroughly. "

-- Thomas H. Huxley, Scientist
