SA Consumers can Celebrate World Consumer Rights Day
South African consumers are taking a battering from ever-rising petrol and electricity prices that keep pushing up the price of transport and food.
And with household debt levels high as consumers borrow more and sink deeper into the debt trap there doesn`t seem like there is much to celebrate on World Consumer Rights Day 2013.

- Is the cost to our Economy, our Society and our Environment really worth these so-called benefits?
