IDC 2770 - Poverty in the World of Plenty

3.00 credits.
World Cultures and International Studies Core Course. Values, Choice, and Justice Core Course. This course will examine the many causes behind half of the world’s people living on less than two dollars a day–the majority of them women and children. Factors such as bias against women, sweatshop labor, a failing environment, government corruption, the history of colonialism, and misguided foreign aid will be explored. Solutions will be sought related to consumer purchases, women’s empowerment, and influencing government policies and aid distribution.
