Your assignment is to prepare and submit a paper on sociological perspectives relating to intercultural inequality. According to the query for this particular analysis, the student is asked to discuss inequality how it can be described, measured, and whether or not any causal relationship exists between class and inequality. As such, it must be firmly understood by the reader, prior to delving into this issue, that within these three brief questions, to exceedingly broad terms exist: class and inequality. With such an understanding in mind, it should further be realized that any broad generalizations and certifications that can be inferred will necessarily be contingent upon the least common denominator and the greatest level of singularity that might exist between these terms. at least within the eyes of this particular author. With this caveat in mind, the discussion will proceed with an analysis of fact and subsequent interpretation of this fact.
The first question that this analysis will attempt to grapple with is with regards to the manner in which inequality can be described as well is measured. Ultimately, inequality merely denotes a differential with regards to the potential of wealth aggregation that an individual is able to realize during the course of their lifetime. As for the above definition, it can clearly be seen that no indication of inequality and labor, inequality of ability, and/or inequality of access is discussed. Rather, this particular form and definition of inequality is one that is overarching and can apply to a litany of different regions and cultures simultaneously. With regards to the actual measurement of inequality, this can, of course, be performed with respect to aggregating an average income within a particular region, nation, culture, or group, and comparing this average with regards to the standard deviations that exist on either side of the curve (Zheng, 2011). Naturally, the average is only able to be attained by taking into account the middle, and extreme points.
