Today we took some notes about social inequality  see a portion below, if you missed today please get full notes from Mr. McCullough or classmate-
 

Max Weber’s criteria for measuring social inequality:
Wealth – accumulated economic resources
Power – the ability to achieve one’s goals and objectives even against the will of others
Prestige– social esteem, respect or admiration
3 types of societies:
 

Egalitarian – no individual or group has appreciably more wealth, power, or prestige than any other.
Rank – unequal access to prestige or status but not unequal access to wealth or power.
Stratified societies – considerable inequality in all forms of social rewards (power,wealth, and prestige).
