Our world can seem unfair, since opportunities depend on which country a person lives in. Why is that? How can we determine if a country is rich or poor? Let’s learn about concepts like GNP, colonialism and humanitarian aid. Why does poverty exist in certain countries? How can more countries break free from poverty? We’ll take a closer look at all this.

In addition to the video, there’s a teacher’s tutorial that includes discussion questions, enrichment studies, and a fun interactive quiz.
