There is no shortage of food in the global village but the food is not divided equally……… 50 people do not have a reliable source of food and are hungry some or all of the time 20 people are severely undernourished Only 30 people always have enough to eat

Wealth If all the money in the village were divided equally, each person would have about £3900 per year. However the money is not divided equally…. The richest 20 have more than £5600 a year The poorest 20 have less than £238 per year. The average cost of food, shelter and necessities in the village is £2500 to £3000 per year

How has the village grown? Around 3000 years ago only 1 person lived in the village 2500 years ago there were 2 people 2000 years ago there were 3 people 1000 years ago there were 5 people 500 years ago there were 8 people 350 years ago there were 10 people 200 years ago there were 17 people 100 years ago there were 32 people In 2002 there were 100 people
The village in the future? The rate of growth of the global village means that there will probably be 250 people in the village by the year This is an important number as many experts think that 250 is the maximum number of people the village can sustain.
