Abstract

This study represents an exploratory investigation of credit card knowledge among one vulnerable consumer segment - the developmentally disabled. The results suggest that many of the individuals did not understand the complexity of credit card products and were not able to make reasoned assessments of financial concepts and credit terms. A little knowledge (learning) is a dangerous thing. Alexander Pope, 1709
