PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The United Nations and other world agencies and in many cases, the countries themselves prefer not to use the terms: First, Second or Third World (since these can imply racial or other bias) in recent years, the terms developed and developing are preferred. So what are the differences between developed and developing countries? The United Nations has developed a Human Development Index that examines the differences in the standard of living between countries thus essentially four categories of countries can be recognized.

Geographers use a wide variety of materials and methods to make sense of the world. This often includes data from both the physical and social sciences. This exercise will utilize information from a variety of geographic sources (graphs, maps, charts and other statistics) focusing on one of the key dilemmas in the world today - the great differences between the "have" and "have not" countries. By processing, analyzing and evaluating this data, you will not only learn some of the techniques by which geographers study the world but will also gain an appreciation of the crucial problem in the world often referred to as the North/South gap.
