Understanding the income inequality in a capitalist society
Karl Marx’s work in understanding the income inequality in a capitalist society would lead to an inevitable struggle, given exploitation of its workers. In today’s society this holds true as we see a growing gap of poverty. According to, (Schaefer, 2017) Marx believed that the relationship of power and dominance of factory owners and it’s workers was systemic from an economical, social and political standpoint. As we see today where lobbiests carry the power in our own country to favor the corporations rather than our working class. Marx whom also shared ideas with Durkheim, who coined the phrase, “Anomie,” to refer to the loss of direction the working class would undergo, in which they could feel suicidal, work lead to the creation of workers unions where individuals could feel they had direction and work for better workers rights. However Marx’s works also lead to communist revolutions in Russia, China, Cuba and elsewhere, his work exepliphied a a disparage between different economic social communities. According to (Schaefer, 2017), since the late 1960’s the shrinking of economic prospects for the working middle-class offers support to Marx’s conflict perspective in economic division, and it’s perpetual struggle between these classes as a way to understand society.
