Development gap, continuum, trade (trade blocs, quotas and subsidies) Case study: Malawi vs. Brazil

This is a very big lesson! It is covering a lot of material in one lesson as we near the end of the course, the homework is also larger than a normal task.

Students then look into the development continuum to see how countries can fit into different areas. Brazil and Malawi are used on a task sheet and a hand out to give the concepts of trade, trade blocs, subsidies, tariffs and quotas more depth and application. Homework is comparing exports and imports with the second part being on free trade and fair trade.
