Central to our approach in this unit is a focus on social equity within the limits of a finite planet. Work, markets, trade, food production and distribution, patterns of consumption and aid as well as the role of transnational corporations, all are topics covered that enable us to better understand social, economic and environmental disparity in a post neo-liberal era. Sharing prosperity is a unit for students wanting to understand how social inequality is produced and who want to investigate alternative paradigms that could more effectively enable better distributive and non-distributive forms of social, environmental and economic justice.
