The planets biggest stadium Football in Brazil had become so popular that it was decided to build a brand new stadium with a capacity of 220,000 in the suburbs of Rio de Janeiro to host this world cup.Host Brazil qualified with three other teams, Spain, Uruguay and Sweden, not for the semi-finals, but for a final series of matches in round robin format, in which England and Italy were surprising absentees.

The World Cup: A Fair Game? WHAT IS INEQUALITY? Inequality: the difference between the things some groups of people have compared to other people.

Examples of inequality:In sport: some athletes have better facilities and training than others.

Between countries: some countries are wealthy while others are extremely poor and have large scale poverty.

Within countries: in some countries there are many people who only have a little and a few people who have a lot more this could be money, or things like better healthcare or education.

Make the point that often when talking about inequality we use income to compare.

But there can be inequality in other things too like quality of health or education.

And it can vary by things like gender, age or ethnicity.52INEQUALITY BETWEEN COUNTRIES

Look at the countries.

Do they all have the same wealth?

Or do some have more than others?

This is global income (wealth) inequality.53

COUNTRY INCOMESThe World Bank classifies each country as either:

a high income country an upper-middle income country a lower-middle income country a low income country

Which do you think each of these countries is?

Ivory CoastUSA England Brazil

Explain that the World Bank is a global bank which lends money to different countries. Explain that they pay close attention to the wealth of countries meaning how much money each country has. They call this a countrys income, which they work out as an average per person to be able to compare countries with more or less people.To calculate it they add up the total amount of money being made in that country over the year. They then divide this by the number of people in the country. They do this calculation in dollars so they can compare all countries fairly.

This is called the GDP per capita, which you can just call the income per person in the country.Discuss the term income and the four classifications.

Which types of country are the richest? (High income) Which types of country are the poorest? (Low income)Ask the pupils which classification they think each of the countries shown are. Ask pupils why they think this.

Brazil upper middleUSA highIvory Coast lower-middleEngland - high54COMPARING WEALTH

Can you compare the ratios of the top 3 and bottom 3 World Cup countries average incomes?Highest 3 incomes: av. $66,000Lowest 3 incomes:av. $1,300Ratio = 66 : 1.3= 66 / 1.3 = 51=51:1This means the richest 3 countries have 51x more money per person than the poorest 3 in the World Cup. Is this fair?You can also help them to compare incomes of countries using ratios.

They will find the ratio of income of the highest 3 teams to the lowest 3 teams is 51:1 therefore the highest income country teams have on average 51x more income per person in their countries than the lowest income country teams. Is this fair?55SCORING INEQUALITY WITHIN COUNTRIES Countries are given a score to show how equal or unequal they are. 0 A score of 0 means that the country is completely equal, that everyone in that country has the same amount of money.

That would look something like this:

In reality, no country looks like this.

Make clear to the pupils that in this fictitious example, everyone in the country has the same amount of money there is no income inequality here.This may seem like a good idea though there could be issues with this.

Would it be fair if everyone earned the same amount of money? What would the problems be with this? (Some people might not work hard for their share of the money / some people might deserve it more for working harder). 56SCORING INEQUALITY WITHIN COUNTRIES A score of 1.0 means the country is completely unequal.

This would look something like this:


In reality, thankfully, no country looks like this either.

Be clear that in this situation is the opposite completely unequal.Would you like to be in this position?Would you like to be considerably richer than everyone else? Would you like to be the other side having nothing?

Explain that this is not true in any country either. 57FAIR WORLD CUP COUNTRIESThese are the World Cup countries.Which do you think scores highest on fairness?Which do you think is the lowest?

58FAIRNESS SCORE EXAMPLESPlot the 4 countries below

0.25 0.30 0.35 0.40 0.45 0.50 0.55Completely Equal Completely Unequal


0.37 Japan

0.29 Brazil

0.46 Cameroon


NOTE point out that the scale is from 0.25 to 0.55 because generally high inequality is near to 0.5 and low inequality below 0.3 therefore the full scale of 0.00 1.00 is not necessary.

Which do they think are the fairest?Of the 4 example countries here, the order of most to least equal distribution of income are:Japan(most equal) Cameroon USA - Brazil (least equal)

Pupils may be surprised that Brazil has quite higher inequality, and Cameroon is better than the USAWhere would England be?

ANSWER 0.36 same as Cameroon

What is going on? What are the buildings like on one half compared to the other?

Does it suggest inequality in Brazil is a problem or not? Does this tie in with Brazils fairness score from the previous slide?

Is it fair that some people have so much and some so little?

The image is from Sao Paolo.

It shows the densely packed Paraisopolis favela (or slum) located next to luxury apartments with swimming pools and tennis courts in the upmarket Morumbi area of Sao Paulo city. Paraisopolis has between 80,000 and 100,000 residents and is the second largest favela in Sao Paulo.

60INEQUALITY IN BRAZILBrazil is hosting the World Cup AND will be hosting the Olympics in 2016. But is inequality an issue in Brazil?

Is it a problem? Is the government trying to do anything? What are the successes and challenges?

The news clip will introduce pupils to the idea that inequality is a big problem in Brazil, but the government is trying to do things to overcome it. This has led to a range of successes, but challenges also remain.61YEARHOST COUNTRYWINNERSCORE2010South AfricaSpainSpain 1-0 Netherlands2006GermanyItalyItaly 1-1 France2002Japan / S.
