Global Wealth Inequality
For this assignment, I want you to browse two websites (and do some writing, but we’ll get to that in a moment):
“Global Inequality.” Institute of Policy Studies. Web. https://inequality.org/facts/global-inequality/. Accessed January 1, 2020.
“Distribution of population between different poverty thresholds, World,” Roser and Ortiz-Ospina, Our World in Data. https://ourworldindata.org/grapher/distribution-of-population-poverty-thresholds. Accessed September 25, 2019.
What you will notice about the two sites is that each organization seems to be telling a different story about the significance of global wealth distribution.
So, for your written assignment, write a page (about 250-300 words) that explains the different stories these two websites are telling about global wealth inequality. This is your guiding question, but as you write your response, here are some questions that may help you frame your response:
- Are there bad consequences to wealth concentration?
- Why, if at all, does wealth inequality matter?
- Is wealth equality a goal that a society should pursue? Why or why not?
- What kinds of wealth are necessary to a good society?
Again, these questions are just to help you think about the stories these two organizations are telling. The main thing is to explain the difference the way global wealth distribution is presented by each website.
