Week 3 Assignment: Develop a Presentation to Analyze if Income Inequality is Increasing
The resources use data and statistics to support answers to the same question, but they reach opposite conclusions! The textbook authors use the Gini Index to argue that income inequality is increasing. Perhaps it could be said that statistics are pliable.
Construct a clear, creative PowerPoint presentation to present each article’s side of the argument and reach a reasoned conclusion about which one is correct. Your audience consists of business leaders attending a forum so you want to make the presentation understandable yet detailed. Use any other resources you choose to complete the assignment. Make sure you read closely and understand the data and categories each article uses. Your presentation should:
Present important statistics on economic inequality discussed in the articles.
Explain what these statistics are: Gini index, Quintile analysis and Quintile distribution, Pareto Criterion, and measures of income, e.g., median and disposable.
Argue, given the statistical knowledge you have gained up to this point in the course, which article gives the correct answer.
Incorporate appropriate animations, transitions, and graphics as well as “speaker notes” for each slide. The speaker notes may be comprised of brief paragraphs or bulleted lists. Be sure to include citations for quotations and paraphrases with references in APA format and style.
Support your presentation with at least three (3) scholarly resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources may be included.
Length: 12-15 slides (with a separate reference slide)
Notes Length: 100-150 words for each slide
