Abstract In this program, Guadeloupeans, Senegalese, and Quebecois talk about how they spend their money-and what they might do if they ever win a fortune! The video also shows how to pay a hotel bill and how to haggle over a purchase. In addition, Senegalese artisans in Dakar who turn junk into fashionable briefcases and cloth scraps into keepsake quilts are profiled, and a sugarcane plantation on Guadeloupe's island of Grande-Terre is spotlighted.
