  • Inequality of condition

  • Inequality of opportunity

  • Meritocracy


Inequality concepts

Inequality Concepts

  • One of the most important ways we justify inequality of condition is by relying on the existence of equality of opportunity.

  • The degree to which we can achieve equality of opportunity depends on the degree to which we have equality of condition.

About meritocracy…

If everyone is rewarded based on their merit, there must not be anything that impedes one individual over another (besides their own personal desire and willingness to put in the effort to achieve). Thus, there must be equality of opportunity.

Since there is equality of opportunity, everyone will have the same chance to succeed. However, some will have less desire and motivation to achieve at a high level so some people will achieve more than others which leads to inequality of condition.

Monopoly Discussion Questions

Discuss your experiences with the game. What observations can you make about the types of obstacles various players faced? What were some of the more effective coping strategies used by some of the players? Are there parallels to real life?

Is it true that the degree to which we can achieve equality of opportunity depends on the degree to which we have equality of condition (at least in terms of the game)? That is, how does the distribution of resources affect opportunity?

Which version does your group think most closely mirrors the socioeconomic situation in the U.S.? Which most closely resembles a meritocracy? Explain.
