Illustration: Clive Offley

See if you can avoid the debt trap. Go to 'Start' and imagine you are a Third World Finance Minister. Your aim is to create a healthy, well-fed, egalitarian society, and to do this, you must negotiate a safe route for your people through the debt maze. Which road will you choose? Take the wrong one and lead your country to the poverty graveyard. Take the right one and you might escape. In the long run, avoiding debt means a greater chance of prosperity for your country. The responsibility is yours.
