I cannot write your essay for you, but I can give you a paragraphical outline that will help you complete the assignment. You will need to add your own examples, observations, and ideas to complete the required pages. Additionally, this was a difficult compare and contrast pairing because not only is Nauru very poor and the U.S. very rich, but their histories and economies are vastly different. Please add one or two sentences to each paragraph...for example...explain what the IMF does and how that could help Nauru. Then add a paragraph or a couple of sentences to the introduction and your own conclusion. You will have a complete essay with your additions.

I will place my references here for you to choose the ones you prefer or to look at to gain more insight.

Religious preferences abound and are embraced, even those who have a pointedly negative view of any deity. Americans embrace cultures and identities often taking on the form of foods, dress, ceremonies, and holidays. Work and gaining wealth is a social norm for most people. Choices in how this is gained are as varied as the people. Art, crafts, and music/dance/theatre are as diversified as the different cultural and ethnic groups found within the country.

Nauru, by contrast, has a culture steeped in the seafaring ways of their ancestors and the travelers from Polynesia ...
