Application Exercise 10ad: Strategies to reduce poverty and inequality

This is a student-led investigation task culminating in presentations, and responses will be highly variable. Therefore, no solutions are provided.

Teachers may choose to evaluate student presentations based on the extent to which it addresses the instructions and includes the key elements outlined in the task, namely:  

A.     An explanation of how the problem contributes to income inequality or global poverty (including data)

B.      An outline of the proposed solution

C.      Arguments in favour of the proposed solution – how it is likely to help improve income inequality or reduce poverty, including, if possible, evidence and examples of where it has been successful

D.     Arguments against the proposed solution – how it could have unintended consequences, or perhaps it’s been tried in the past and proved unsuccessful (again including evidence and data.)
