Gini Coefficient

Rebecca Small came up with a great e-sheet for the Gini coefficient for all of the seven (I am including the US in this count) AP Comparative nations.  I had the students break into groups and they used an editable Google Drive document to create a chart for all of the groups on one e-sheet. It really does teach the students a great deal.  To go along with it, here is a recent article on the differences between the rich and the poor in China.  Just for kicks, I am throwing in the piece done last night on 60 minutes on the couple  who has changed the landscape of Beijing.
