In a well-developed essay, of at least 500 words, discuss the tension and conflicting interests of social spending that targets the elderly versus that which benefits children and young people. In your discussion, tell me your opinion of whether the balance we currently have is: 1) just; 2) far- or short-sighted; and 3) reasonable. Discuss as well what you believe to be the justification for this disparity as well as your thoughts about how things should or should not be changed.
Essays are to be word processed; a minimum of 500 words; single spaced with the standard default 12 pt. font (Word’s default font is Times New Roman) and normal margins, etc.
