This is a class assignment of 500 words. It is to be posted on a discussion board through the school’s Blackboard. The ted talk the teacher is referring to is called: How economic inequality harms societies by Richard Wilkinson. 1. Give at least 3 specific examples of new trends or statistics that you learned preparing for this discussion board. Are you surprised by the statistics about wealth inequality given in the Ted Talk or in the textbook? Why or why not? 2. To what extent do you think wealth inequality is affecting what has happened to the American population in recent history, as they battle COVID-19? Obviously a virus does not care who it targets, but what do you notice about how resources matter in how different subpopulations in America are being impacted by the disease? Be specific and give examples. 3. What do you think? Should growing inequality be a matter of public concern? Is it consistent or inconsistent with the type of country you would like to live in? Why or why not? In order to complete this assignment, you must also respond thoughtfully in comments on two of your classmates’ posts. Also, please remember to refer to the Discussion Board checklist to make sure that you have completed and submitted this assignment correctly before the deadline closes. 1
