  • Good morning class, welcome to capitalism 101.  Capitalism is the economic system in which the basic necessities for life are privately owned. A key aspect of capitalism is profiting at anyones expense while maximizing the output of products1. Karl Marx believed it to be an oppressive system where few benefit, and the majority suffer2
  • What was Marx's theory on social class inequality?
  • Marx believed the capitalist economic system did not create harmony but promoted alienation. He created the 3 class system, which included the Bourgeoisie, The Petit Bourgeoisie, and The Working Class3.
  • What was included in the Bourgeoisie, The Petit Bourgeoisie, and The Working Class?
  • The Bourgeoisie represented the capitalists, they owned the means of survival. The Petit Bourgeoisie, included the educated professionals, who spread ideology. Then the Working Class, who needed to work to survive4.

  • Indeed it does! A prime example would be when Walter Cunningham pours syrup on his dinner and Scout is disgusted. Walter is part of a completely different social class than the Finches and is not used to having syrup, let alone a real dinner available to him6.

  • I wonder what they are serving in the cafeteria for lunch today...
  • Here is the social class hierarchy within Maycomb. The Finches are at the top, being white, educated, and landowners. Below is the Cunninghams, being white and part of the working class. Next the Ewells, being white but not working. Finally at the very bottom is the coloured, like Tom Robinson. Their social class is also reflected in the location in which they live( in town vs. behind the dump)7 Thus concluding capitalism 101!
