Students learned about the wealth distribution in the world and in the United States. We learned that in the United States:
- 1% of the population owns 40% of the wealth
- 80% of the population owns just 7% of the wealth (source)
As a team, we had $100,000 of wealth to distribute. We realized that would mean...
- 1 student in our team would receive $40,000.
- 45 students would receive a total of $7,000, split among them.
Students chose cards from a deck of cards. Students were able to trade their cards. The video shows the reveal of the starting wealth of our project. For more about our project, visit the Stewardship Project page from the button below.
