SOC 150 Week Seven (March 1 and 3 ) rd Contains: Chapter 9: The structure of society Terms and Definitions: Social Dilemma: Potential for a society’s long term ruin because of individuals’ tendency to pursue their own-short term interests. The conflict between: Individual – Common goods / Capitalism – Democracy Oligarchy: A system of authority in which many people are ruled by a privileged few. Tragedy of the commons: Situation in which people are acting individually and in their own interest use up commonly available (but limited) resources, creating disaster for the entire community. Free-rider problem: Tendency for people to refrain from contributing to the common good when a resource is available without requiring any personal cost or contribution 3 things that mediate the social dilemma: 1) Privatization: People own a particular resource are motivated to preserve it. They use it efficiently and distribute it through economic system. 2) Central control: The government take control of everything and distribute resources through relegations 3) Communication: The connection between privatization and central control to achieve the balance between the two opposite factors.
