Why some countries are poor and others rich

Lesson created by Cynthia Silva using

Video from The School of Life YouTube Channel

Let’s Begin…

The reason why some countries are rich and others poor depends on many things, from the quality of their institutions to what latitude they're on. The School of Life helps to explain why some countries prosper and others stagnate. 

Create and share a new lesson based on this one.

It has become increasingly important to understand the conditions that have contributed to international inequality. As the world population continues to grow, this knowledge can help to create a path of prosperity for poorer countries.
