1. Choose one nation from each industrialized level (most industrialized, industrializing, least industrialized) and identify a determining element (e.g., royalty, wealth, property, prestige, accent) of class status in each nation. How do these inequalities contribute to the social problems within each country selected?
2. Do you think sociologists should be more concerned about the gap in wealth within nations or the growing gap in wealth between nations? What do you think the causes for these two types of inequalities might be?
