Social Stratification, Endogenous Contradictions, and Institutional Change
This paper strengthens the analysis of "endogenous contradictions" found in social structures of accumulation (SSA) theory. It offers a precise definition of the term, spells out why it is that highly stratified societies are prone to contradictions of this sort, and discusses a mechanism by which contradictions lead to crises and, thereby, the need for institutional change. The theoretical framework is applied to the evolution of labor management relations in twentieth century U.S. manufacturing, where it yields new insights into a similar analysis in SSA theory.
