This lesson looks at how poverty and inequality is linked to both the earnings and poverty trap. The lesson focuses on the earnings trap, the poverty trap, the underground trap, the underground economy and the difference between equity and equality. The lesson then looks at both horizontal and vertical equity. The lesson also looks at government policies that are designed to reduce poverty. The lesson includes lots of detailed theory, diagrams, examples and tasks. I have also included a nice gap fill worksheet. I have also included a nice starter activity on the Lorenz Curve. I have also created a nice government policy matching task. The lesson concludes with past exam style questions. I have also included a fun economics Pictionary game for the topics covered in poverty and further back in the syllabus. I have also included a student version of the PPT.
