Read the passage to answer question 6-8

At the turn of the twentieth century, peoples attitudes toward money were far more conservative than
they are today. Borrowing and being in debt were viewed as a moral failing, almost as a disgrace. Thrift
and saving were highly prized, and people who needed to borrow to make ends meet were seen as
careless, unreliable, or extravagant. The focus in the economy as a whole was on developing large
corporations like railroads, oil companies, and other companies that produced basic goods and
services.
Then, in the 1920s, the economy changed. A huge network of banks and financial institutions
developed, helping money to move more quickly and easily through the economy. At the same time,
the economy was increasing its focus on consumer goods clothing, cars, household appliances, and
other things that individuals buy. To help promote the sale of these items, consumers were encouraged
to buy on credit. If they could not afford an item right away, a store or a bank might lend them the
money, which they could pay back in installments.
With the development of consumer credit and installment purchases, peoples attitudes toward debt
and spending changed. The model citizen was no longer someone who was thrifty, buying only what he
or she needed. People were respected less for being thrifty than for knowing how to use their money to
buy as many things as possible an attitude that persists at the turn of the twenty-first century.
