Find an object in your home that was not made in the United States. Conduct some Internet research and write a brief description of the living conditions in that country. Reflecting on your research, the PBS NewsHour video and Wade’s blog post (see Resources), and other course materials, respond to the following questions:
- What are your views on global poverty? Why do you think it exists?
- How are the lives of those that live in the country you have identified above differ from the United States? What impact does global poverty have on our everyday lives?
- What suggestions do you have for eliminating global poverty?
