Social stratification

social stratification

position with respect to the class or status. Sociologists generally distinguish four main types of social stratification -slavery, estate, caste and social class and status. In tribal systems too, there existed hierarchy. The lower base of the pyramid is associated with poverty and maximum numbers. Economist Paul Samuelson described income inequality in America in these words: "If we made an income pyramid out of a child's blocks, with each layer portraying 500 of income, the peak would be far higher than. Horizontal mobility is when there is change of occupation or position of an individual, but not an accompanied change of class. Based on the proficiency of some tribals in certain tasks, they were entitled to be heads of the clan due to their skills. Marxist theory explains the opposing classes of the society as the proletariat and the bourgeoisie.

This is described by Gisbert as division of society into permanent groups on categories linked with each other by the relationship of superiority and subordination. In developed economies, societies are classified into three broad categories. Income, however, is the best way to measure a nation's productivity too. Lower class : It refers to people who are uneducated, either unemployed, or with low levels of income. Some are rich and power.In every society there are ruling class and ruled class or subjects. Slavery : The relation of a master and slave was the peak of inequality in human history. These words highlight the most peculiar feature of any form of social stratification, where the base of the pyramid identifies with more or less similar people. It forms the larger power structure that influences all the social activities within that particular community. These economic classes according to Marx are the actual representatives of social stratification.
