1.Motivate the choice of the two countries: focus on their similarities and differences. This will be the basis for your further comparison.
2.Look at the patterns and growth of income in the two countries at least for the past 10 years. (Make sure that you use real GDP per capita that is adjusted for purchasing power parity (PPP) for your comparison).
3.Indicate the levels of income inequality between the countries and change in the growth of GDP per capita over the years.
4.Show how the levels of income between the countries is related with various indicators of standard of living such as maternal and child mortality, life expectancy, education level, physical capital (infrastructure) etc.
5.Give explanations why you see such income differences and patterns. Base your explanation on the factors that are discussed in the class (both the short run and long run causes of growth). These include labor force, human capital, physical capital, technology, geography, culture, institutions, history.
