Chapter 5 examines how the moral and physical health of consumers and consumer districts became tied to economic rights, commercial expansion, and political stability. Intertwined in these debates were competing consumer and leisure discourses. Free consumer advocates advanced and protected the underground economy of leisure and advocates of consumer protection advanced a program of economic growth and environmental justice. Together, these campaigns helped contain campaigns for integrated leisure by solidifying the legal doctrine of “separate but equal.”
