Course Description Wealth, not poverty, is the engine of inequality. Theoretically, almost all explanations of inequality are relational. Poverty cannot be understood as a thing in-and-of itself. Instead, it must be understood in relation to both wealth and overall social organization. Yet scholars have dedicated almost all their time to the disadvantage side of inequality and spent little time on understanding the "other side" of the relations of inequality: advantages. This class is dedicated to that other side.
