The wealth gap between 1st world countries and 3rd world countries seems to be increasing. How can we reduce this gap? Do you think that developed countries have a duty to assist developing countries in every way? Model Answer: Every day the rich countries in the world get richer and the poor countries get poorer. Can we reduce this gap? Of course we can. The question is whether the people in power want to do it? Reducing the wealth gap can be achieved by cancelling third world debt, cancelling trade and farming subsidies so that third world countries can compete, getting rid of third world corruption and investing and building in third world countries using local people and skills and allowing them ownership of businesses. There are other things as well. Unfortunately there is no profit in business for first world countries to do these things. Some will do them but most will not. The ordinary man on the street wants things to be better for poorer countries and the politicians say that they will help but the politicians will in the end do what business tells them to do. Politicians also rightly feel they have a duty to protect their own countries and keeping economically dominant is part of this duty. Creating effective competition for their own country‛s businesses is not part of what they are expected to do. This then leads on to whether I believe that developed countries have a duty to help the developing countries. Yes, I do. As an individual I believe that we have a duty to assist the poorer countries with their development in all aspects. We can provide teachers and education and doctors on the small scale and on the larger scale the things that I have talked about in the previous paragraph. Can we do this? Yes. Will we do this? See the previous paragraph again. In conclusion you can see that I believe that there is a split between what would happen in a perfect world and what actually happens. We have a duty to reduce the wealth gap between developed and developing countries and we can do it, but it is unlikely that this will happen quickly.
Some people think technological development increases the gap between the rich and the poor, while others believe it has the opposite effects. Discuss both these views and give your own opinion. 支持前者 IT industry is the most sought-‐after (趋之若鹜的) area of business, therefore quite a few shareholders of IT companies become millionaires, billionaires and even zillionaires overnight, e.g. Bill Gates. Modern technology has literally changed every corner of the world, and people’s lives basically revolve around it. Some people take advantage of it, amassing (积聚) wealth in a short period of time, e.g Mark Zuckerburg. Technological tycoons and their shareholders monopolise social resource, e.g. opportunity for good education and well-‐paying investment, leaving the disadvantaged untended. 支持后者 Responding to the huge demand for technology, companies have to expand their scale, which created numerous well-‐paid job opportunities for engineers, programmers, salespeople, etc. 空中飞行只能由富享受， 而不是穷 (高科技量产后就能降低价格，被大众接受) The success of high-‐tech enterprises is an inspiring role model to people, which encourages the appearance of thousands of millions of money-‐making micro-‐enterprises, e.g. the C2C shops on Taobao. Governments can make use of technology to benefit their people, e.g. they can exploit the internet service to deliver schooling online to remote areas, and they can redistribute the tax collected from profitable high-‐tech companies to impoverished people. 空中飞行只能 由富享受，而不是穷(如果有政府补贴，会更容易普及;主要因为陆地运输 方式是火车 ，而火车的发明早于飞机 ，所以经济实力稍差的会选择做火车 。但 对于一些主要由岛屿组成的国家，便宜的飞行就可以建设起来) 建议 Technology does not trigger the exploding of wealth gap, as long as the society and the government make proper use of it.
题目：Some people believe the range of technology available to individuals today is increasing the gap between the poor and the rich. Others think it is having an opposite effect. Discuss these points of view. What is your opinion? 范文：The gap between the rich and the poor has been a problem that human beings put efforts to solve. One approach is to develop various technologies and techniques. Automobiles, for instance, are supposed to free those who use their physical power to move objects or people. However, the developments of technologies are said to increase the gap. Those who claim that technologies have played important roles in decreasing the gaps between the have and the have-not are correct, only partly, because they see the issue with too enthusiastic eyes. They pay much attention to the power of technologies but seldom focus on the social elements that keep technologies from being truly positive to human well being. For example, the mobile phones as a new technology should greatly emancipate people from low effective paper and pencil pattern of communication. However, this technology has not played its supposed roles because mobile phones are totally controlled by the few haves in the society. In China, it is the CMCC which is believed to be profiteer without much human nature. However, those who entirely attribute the increasing gaps between the rich and the poor to the development of technologies are also not convincing. They, like those discussed above, fail to see that it is not technologies but the distribution systems of the social resources that account much more. In any human societies, it is not the resources per se, but the political, economic, and even religious fabrics, that finally dictate how many and however poor or rich its population is. In conclusion, the development of technology bears no direct cause-effect relationship with the gap between the rich and the poor.
Some people think that the range of technology available to individuals is increasing the gap between rich countries and poor countries，while others hold the opposite opinion. What is your opinion? 一些认为科技导致贫富国差异越来越大，另外一些持否定态度，你的观点是什么? 思路提点 导致贫富差距 不是钱而是科技缺乏导致贫困 it is not money but technology that drives prosperity. 更甚，科技的缺乏使贫困无法摆脱。 poverty is driven and sustained by a lack of technology. 科技可以是掠夺资源的工具 Technology can be used as a tool of oppression. 一个国家的科技进步(technological advancement) 使之对贫困国家的自然资源进行掠夺(has allowed it to exploit natural resources)。富国的才资本积累(the accumulation of intellectual capital) 使差距拉大(broaden this gap)， 因为他们控制了先进的技术 because it has enabled them to control technology 词汇补充 才资本积累the accumulation of intellectual capital 掠夺自然资源exploit natural resources 科技可以是掠夺资源的工具 technology can be used as a tool of oppression 科技进步technological advancement 差距拉大broaden the gap 以上就是桂林朗阁雅思小编为您整理雅思贫富英语作文范文的全部内容，更多精彩请进入雅思学习栏目查看。 分享到： 热门文章 1关于语言消失的雅思作文范文2015-08-052雅思小作文字数要求2014-06-243关于伦敦地铁的雅思图表作文范文2015-07-114关于大学学费的雅思作文范文2015-06-065关于道路安全的雅思作文范文2015-06-096关于男女分校的雅思作文范文2015-07-077关于城市与农村的雅思作文范文2015-07-078关于乡村与城市生活的雅思作文范文2015-08-289关于太空研究的雅思作文范文2015-04-0110关于传统艺术的雅思作文范文2017-03-29
