Wealth Inequality in the USA, Canada, the UK, and the World: A Slice of the Big Picture Pie!

viewed 2,998 times and seen via embed 11 times

One of the core themes explored in our Global Citizenship course is poverty. We employ social analysis to better understand poverty locally and globally. Poverty is the result of economic inequality, or the unequal distribution of wealth and income among members of any society.

In this content curation project, I want to gather relevant material around the central theme of wealth (and income) inequality in Canada, the US, and globally and connect this major topic to other issues and dimensions including social stratification (the 1% vs. the rest - i.e, 99%), tax avoidance and evasion, charity vs. social justice, and inequality vs. equity - all issues and themes that figure prominently in our course on global citizenship.
