Reducing Inequality

Imagine that you are a representative from an agency involved in international development that has been
invited to advise a policymaker in a developing world country on specific steps they could take to reduce
inequality and poverty in their country. Assume that the policymaker you are advising is earnest, honest, and
committed to policy reform.
Choose one of the developing countries we have considered so far in our course: Guatemala, Nigeria, Mexico,
or Zambia.
Identify and review the inequality-related economic and human development challenges that the country faces
and write a policy position paper of at least 1,250 words advocating a coherent set of at least three policy
suggestions that would address these challenges. Your policy position paper should be anchored in reliable
empirical data and utilize appropriate theoretical and conceptual frameworks.
Sources: Each policy memo should consult and directly reference at least 4 reliable sources, at least 3 of which
must be academic journal articles, in-depth government/NGO published reports, and/or other scholarly sources
(exclusive of the course textbook).
