Instructions

 

  • This assignment will give you an opportunity to take a closer look at a specific course topic, or a theme that runs throughout the course.
  •  
  • 8-10 pages in length (not including your title page and reference page). The essay should be double-spaced, 12-point font.
  •  
  • You can write more if you want to. I have no problem with that, and I don’t want you to feel that length is a limitation.
  • However, a shorter essay may not fulfill all the assignment requirements and that may lower your mark.
  •  
  • Topic:  An unequal world: economic inequality and insecurity

 

In this course, a number of modules cover the study of economic security. One issue that we focus on is economic inequality. In an essay, I want you to discuss the general issue of income inequality, how it is measured, and the impact it has in contrasting economic environments (e.g., high-income countries and low-income countries). 

This topic will require you to work with course readings as well as resources that you research. 

 

Please write an essay that fulfills the following requirements:

 

1. In your own words, summarize Jeffrey Sachs’s discussion of income inequality in the course reading you have from him (you’ll find this in Part III of the assigned chapter called “Unequal World” from his book, The Age of Sustainable Development). Please do not use direct quotations in place of your own words. The point here is for you to construct a summary of his discussion based on your own analysis of what he says. 

However, if you reference specific data (for example, about Denmark’s Gini coefficient), then you should include a proper citation. Value 4 marks.

 

2. Explain how income inequality is addressed by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Then explain how one particular case of income inequality in a lower income country is being addressed by the United Nations or some other organization (e.g., the World Bank). 

Note: this part of the paper will require some research. 

You will need at least one source for your case (it could be a report from the UN, for example). If you need some websites to help you start, consult Module 7. Value: 6 marks.

 

3.   Look at the impact of economic inequality in high-income countries. What kind of insecurities does it promote within the societies of these countries? For example, is there a relationship between income inequality and increased political instability?  You can focus on a case study or you can look at a debate (e.g., the debate about “neoliberalism’s” effects on democracy). You can find useful materials for this topic on the Course Resources page (look under Modules 8 and 9).  Value: 6 marks.

 

4. In a conclusion, discuss your own assessment and impressions of the impact of income inequality on the security of people within their home countries. Answer this question as part of your reflections: How important do you think the reduction of income inequality is to economic security (within a country or region, or globally, if you’d like to think at that scale)? Give reason to support your answer. Value: 6 marks

 

The remaining 3 marks are for proper academic documentation and formatting.

 

  • Please note: this is not a grade for your “writing.” Quality of writing can impact on an overall essay grade in different ways, so it isn’t included here. Also, please note that an essay without citations will be returned and I will ask you to resubmit.
  • I am not able to grade an essay that does not cite sources.
  • The minimum penalty for submitting a paper without citations is the full loss of these 3 marks. A late penalty of 5% per day may also be applied until I receive the submission again.

  • This assignment will give you an opportunity to take a closer look at a specific course topic, or a theme that runs throughout the course.
  •  
  • 8-10 pages in length (not including your title page and reference page). The essay should be double-spaced, 12-point font.
  •  
  • You can write more if you want to. I have no problem with that, and I don’t want you to feel that length is a limitation. 
  • However, a shorter essay may not fulfill all the assignment requirements and that may lower your mark. 
  •  
  • Topic:  An unequal world: economic inequality and insecurity

 

In this course, a number of modules cover the study of economic security. One issue that we focus on is economic inequality. In an essay, I want you to discuss the general issue of income inequality, how it is measured, and the impact it has in contrasting economic environments (e.g., high-income countries and low-income countries). 

This topic will require you to work with course readings as well as resources that you research. 

 

Please write an essay that fulfills the following requirements:

 

1. In your own words, summarize Jeffrey Sachs’s discussion of income inequality in the course reading you have from him (you’ll find this in Part III of the assigned chapter called “Unequal World” from his book, The Age of Sustainable Development). Please do not use direct quotations in place of your own words. The point here is for you to construct a summary of his discussion based on your own analysis of what he says. 

However, if you reference specific data (for example, about Denmark’s Gini coefficient), then you should include a proper citation. Value 4 marks.

 

2. Explain how income inequality is addressed by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Then explain how one particular case of income inequality in a lower income country is being addressed by the United Nations or some other organization (e.g., the World Bank). 

Note: this part of the paper will require some research. 

You will need at least one source for your case (it could be a report from the UN, for example). If you need some websites to help you start, consult Module 7. Value: 6 marks.

 

3.   Look at the impact of economic inequality in high-income countries. What kind of insecurities does it promote within the societies of these countries? For example, is there a relationship between income inequality and increased political instability?  You can focus on a case study or you can look at a debate (e.g., the debate about “neoliberalism’s” effects on democracy). You can find useful materials for this topic on the Course Resources page (look under Modules 8 and 9).  Value: 6 marks.

 

4. In a conclusion, discuss your own assessment and impressions of the impact of income inequality on the security of people within their home countries. Answer this question as part of your reflections: How important do you think the reduction of income inequality is to economic security (within a country or region, or globally, if you’d like to think at that scale)?

2. Explain how income inequality is addressed by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Then explain how one particular case of income inequality in a lower income country is being addressed by the United Nations or some other organization (e.g., the World Bank). 

Note: this part of the paper will require some research. 

You will need at least one source for your case (it could be a report from the UN, for example). If you need some websites to help you start, consult Module 7. Value: 6 marks.

 

3.   Look at the impact of economic inequality in high-income countries. What kind of insecurities does it promote within the societies of these countries? For example, is there a relationship between income inequality and increased political instability?  You can focus on a case study or you can look at a debate (e.g., the debate about “neoliberalism’s” effects on democracy). You can find useful materials for this topic on the Course Resources page (look under Modules 8 and 9).  Value: 6 marks.

 

4. In a conclusion, discuss your own assessment and impressions of the impact of income inequality on the security of people within their home countries. Answer this question as part of your reflections: How important do you think the reduction of income inequality is to economic security (within a country or region, or globally, if you’d like to think at that scale)? Give reason to support your answer. Value: 6 marks

 

The remaining 3 marks are for proper academic documentation and formatting.

Instructions

 

  • This assignment will give you an opportunity to take a closer look at a specific course topic, or a theme that runs throughout the course.
  •  
  • 8-10 pages in length (not including your title page and reference page). The essay should be double-spaced, 12-point font.
  •  
  • You can write more if you want to. I have no problem with that, and I don’t want you to feel that length is a limitation. 
  • However, a shorter essay may not fulfill all the assignment requirements and that may lower your mark. 
  •  
  • Topic:  An unequal world: economic inequality and insecurity

 

In this course, a number of modules cover the study of economic security. One issue that we focus on is economic inequality. In an essay, I want you to discuss the general issue of income inequality, how it is measured, and the impact it has in contrasting economic environments (e.g., high-income countries and low-income countries). 

This topic will require you to work with course readings as well as resources that you research. 

 

Please write an essay that fulfills the following requirements:

 

1. In your own words, summarize Jeffrey Sachs’s discussion of income inequality in the course reading you have from him (you’ll find this in Part III of the assigned chapter called “Unequal World” from his book, The Age of Sustainable Development). Please do not use direct quotations in place of your own words. The point here is for you to construct a summary of his discussion based on your own analysis of what he says. 

However, if you reference specific data (for example, about Denmark’s Gini coefficient), then you should include a proper citation. Value 4 marks.

 

2. Explain how income inequality is addressed by the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Then explain how one particular case of income inequality in a lower income country is being addressed by the United Nations or some other organization (e.g., the World Bank).
