Stereotypes of development in political cartoons

The central image of this political cartoon is the sinking boat, which resembles two things, the world and the inequality, or rather the sheer contrast of economic growth, wealth and labour of the MEDC’s, the Western world, and the LEDC’s and the Developing countries (i.e. Mexico, Uganda, Haiti, the list goes on). The boxes in the cartoon depict the ideologies and factors that the MEDC/west have, such as denial which represents the failure of the MEDC’s to acknowledge and address the inequality between the MEDC’s and the LEDC’s. The boxes profits and consumerism highlighting capitalism and how unfair it is to other LEDC’s.
