This chapter begins with the definition of ‘goods’, which is defined by section 61(1) as including ‘all personal chattels other than things in action and money’ and in particular ‘emblements, industrial growing crops, and things attached to or forming part of the land which are agreed to be severed before sale or under the contract of sale’. The discussions then turn to ‘the price’ covering credit cards and other cards, and trading stamps, points, and vouchers; basic statutory distinctions covering contract and conveyance, existing and future goods, specific and unascertained goods, and general and special property; and the contract of sale and related transactions involving goods covering work and materials contracts, barter and trade-in agreements, bailment agreements, gift, agency agreements, and security agreements.
