You arrive at your car and find that your meter has expired and you have gotten a parking ticket. Examining this through a conflict theory lens, you might think

Answer #1

Answer.

According to the conflict theory, society is a culmination of conflict or contestation between different economic, racial and social groups for limited resources, power and influence. state agencies such as the police operate towards marinating the status quo of the dominant groups and ensure the larger situation of inequality in society. Thus, it is likely that the parking ticket on one’s car would be seen as an act of discrimination as we may consider that we were given a parking ticket for our common Ford car because it suggested our status as a common middle class tax paying citizen who is not as influential as a high end Mercedes car owner. Thus, based on the conflict perspective, higher levels of minority presence and overall economic inequality will predict higher levels of social control from police force.

On your way to work you usually stop by your favorite coffee
shop. You can either walk-in or drive-through. The service time is
exponentially distributed, with an average time of 5 minutes if you

the shop, there is a 40% chance that the parking lot is full, so
you would need to order at the drive-through.

Suppose you purchased a non-refundable plane ticket but, at the
last minute, you have to cancel. You have the option to sell the
ticket. If you initially paid $700 for the ticket, overnighting the
ticket to someone through the mail would be $20, and you pay
someone $10 to take the ticket to the post office to be mailed.
What is the minimum price you should accept to purchase your
ticket? (Hint: think about sunk cost)
- 730
- 670...
