Dinner for the World

This luncheon game is meant to simulate for students some of the inequities of the present socioeconomic world situation and some of the feelings of helplessness and frustration that result from these inequities. By enabling the participants to deal with a concrete experience of purchasing power, the exercise becomes a learning tool that explores global imbalances. Through this luncheon, students will become more familiar with the disparity of resources around the world and may then make the links to the disparity of resources in the United States.
