  2. 2. •An important economic role for govt is to define, establish and reinforce property rights. •Markets do not allocate resources effectively if property rights are not clearly defined or reinforced. •A property right to a good or serve includes the right to exclude others from using a good or service and the right to transfer the ownership or the use of the resource to others.
  3. 3.  Property rights give people the right to use their possessions as they choose (within the limits of the law).  Property rights, contract enforcement, standards for weights and measures, and liability rules affect incentives for people to produce and exchange goods and services.
  4. 4.  Without property rights there would be little incentive to invest. People invest in what they own because they expect to earn a return on that investment. So, for example, many people landscape the lawns of homes they own, but few landscape a home they are renting.  People would have less confidence in contracts if there were no guarantee of enforcement. Thus people would be less willing to trust contracts to buy, sell, or invest. This would reduce economic activity.
  5. 5.  The government enforcement of weights and measures assures consumers that when they buy ten gallons of gas, they are actually getting ten gallons.
  6. 6. Various types of contracts impact consumers.

Implications and related concepts include :  three-day rescission period  circumstances requiring co-signatures  legal ramifications of adults (e.g., roommates) sharing financial responsibilities involving a contract.
  9. 9. Individuals should set up and maintain a filing system.
  10. 10.  A well maintained filing system gives one access to personal records when needed.  A well maintained filing system includes ease of storage retrieval and shredding of documents.
  11. 11.  Manual and electronic are the primary types of filing systems.  Systems can have numeric, chronological, and/or tickler access.
  12. 12. Consumers have rights, responsibilities, and remedies. Consumers have a responsibility to be vigilant. The Federal Reserve System, often called the Fed, is the central bank of the United States. The Federal Reserve System has a number of consumer protection responsibilities and activities.
  13. 13. Consumers have the right  to be informed  to be safe  to choose  to be heard  to have avenues for redress of consumer grievances (e.g., state and federal agencies, consumer protection laws, private groups such as Common Cause and Better Business Bureau).
