Sociology Notes Final Exam 4/6/16 Social Class and Inequality Difference between social class and socioeconomic status Socioeconomic = prestiage, honor, respect, power associated with different class position in society -determined by wealth + income + education, occupation, rave, family, ethnicity (ascribed) -higher prestige with greater education -social class: Upper: people who own vast property and other forms wealth, shareholders, CEOs, celebs, financials, politicians, member prestigious families 5% of US Middle: college education, supervisors, executives, owners small businesses, lawyers, doctors, engineer 45% of US Working: factory, industrial, office works, farm and manual labors, not attended college, don’t own home Poor: work for minimum wage, chronically underemployed 15% 4/8/16 How can members of the upper class structure other social institutions to ensure that their personal interests are met and that the class itself endures? -Rich people can send their kids to really nice schools to get an elite education to stay in the upper class -Controlling mass medias, the rich people own the media (run by probably 3 CEOs) -it takes a lot of money to run for a politician position and also if you have a lot of money you can donate to a candidate so they will eventually do what the donor wanted to see implemented Example: Bill gates can stand before congress and speak on education but he never finished college but because of his success and financial standing he can do this. A graduate of an IV league university is not granted this position because he is a music arts teacher Cultural Capital Definition: to refer to the status characteristics that can determine a person’s social opportunities -legacies and alumni (maybe even donated money to the institution) Bad thing about this you can exchange this for economic value -Attractive people are assumed to posses other positive qualities -kindness, intelligence Give some examples of how this might be done -style: how they dress How do parents of higher social standing pass on different “cultural capital” to their children? -parents have exposed their kids to things that give them a social advantage that can translate to an economic advantage (for example getting an internship) -their parents take them to travel Europe -their parents expose them to different museums
