The Hunger Games trilogy is set in dystopian, Panem, that consists of 13 districts and the Capitol. The Capitol is the utopia city of Panem, in which all the wealthy and powerful citizens reside.

The accumulation in population added onto the problem by leaving more people to be replaced by machines and eventually become poor. This generation brought many people and there wasn’t a sure reason on why, but the size multiplied by as much as three sizes (Avery 123). Most explanation on why population built was because of longer life span, immigration, and survival of infants (Avery 120). The men tried to get occupations, but all of the leftover positions were unskilled and still left them not being able to provide anything for their families. Wages were so low that even when one worked, they barely had enough to live on, so without a job there was no money to fall back on.
“The Hunger Games” is a superlative, visceral experience that deserves every bit of its hype. It is a stellar accomplishment that works on every level, but none more profoundly than as a book adaptation. In the months leading up to its release, I did not believe it was possible for a blockbuster, PG-13 Hollywood film to capture the searing intensity of the source material. “The Hunger Games” is a post-apocalyptic story set in a shattered United States.

The children are not paid to work, but the man owning the plantation does. In my opinion, this is extremely unfair because the owner isn't even doing any work. He sits from afar watching young children work long hours while he gains profit. In order for children to be paid, the price of chocolate would also need to be raised.

The merchants were the least wealthy of all the peasants because they were completely dependent on other people to give them work. (www.hierarchystructure.com). The main difference between the European and Japanese peasants was that in medieval Europe all peasants had to pay a tithe, which required them to pay 10 percent of their earnings to the king. European peasants also had to pay fees on different occasions like when sons were born and daughters were married.
The author represents this to show what Katniss has to face and the dictatorship in their government, also known as the Capitol which the thirteen districts surrounds. The thirteen districts have strictly followed rules, just like how the government does. Collins conveyed this to the colonial period where the North America was split into thirteen colonies just like how in the story they are split into thirteen districts. What the thirteen districts and the thirteen colonies had in common is that they both were under a cruel system
The United States of America is one of the wealthiest countries on earth, but even so, millions of Americans struggle to find enough food to eat every day. Food insecurity is when a family cannot consistently get enough food for the entire house hold to eat. 14 percent of households, around 17.6 million people, were considered food insecure in 2012 (Piontak 75). In 2007, 12.6 million children experienced a lack of food. Food insecurity has many causes, including rising food prices, climate change, population growth, and inadequate income.
