Consumer Information in 1991


A few months ago, Alexis Rudd sent my kids some of her science books from her childhood. They have greatly enjoyed the books. My wife and I, being 30-somethings, greatly enjoyed finding a 1991 Consumer Information Catalog produced by US General Services Administration.

A catalog of free and low-cost federal publications of consumer interest

It is a spectacular snapshot of what US Federal Government thought “consumer interest” was in the Autumn of 1991.

Ah, yes, the microwave revolution. Heady, delicious times.

Is it still a “fad” diet if we were already worrying about it 20+ years ago.

Oh dear. Always a bit embarrassing when the US Federal Government sounds like your grandfather. Also, very little of the description says “good news”. I think Futurama stole this line.
