[code:1:4dc2320d74]The Issue
Commentators have warned that Sliponia's social inequalities threaten to make it an international pariah.

The Debate
"Look, I don't like it either," said Chamber of Commerce spokesperson Fleur Clinton. "Just on the way here, I had to step over three homeless people, and one of my shoes got caught on a beggar. But inequality is the price we pay for economic strength. If anything, we need fewer taxes, so those of us who are well-off can afford to be more generous. If we want to, that is."

"I think we've forgotten what economic strength is all about," says social worker Naki Mombota. "The economy is meant to be a means to a high standard of living, not an end in itself. It's become an excuse for the rich to prosper while the poor fall through the cracks. Not everyone is poor because they don't feel like working. We must provide more welfare."

"Who says we're an international pariah?" demands military honcho Bianca Clinton. "What are their names? If that's the way the international community feels, we obviously need to prepare for war."

What effects do each of these options have?

Havn't gotten this one in a while, so I forgot everything the options did. Sorry. :(

I'm thinking options 1 & 2 boost the economy, but I'm wondering which gives the larger boost.

My excellent treatment of the poor keeps me from worrying here.

I used to have good equality, but now that my economy crashed, I'm screwed. But I'm going to go with Option 1 to raise my economy and then work later to increase social equality.
