    This is what it's about...

    Relative deprivation theory



    The gap between what one has and what one feels one deserved leads to feeling of relative deprivation and aggression. The feelings of aggression arising from relative deprivation exacerbate existing prejudices about out-groups, especially at times of economic hardship.



    Runciman (1966) drew a distinction between two different types of relative deprivation:



    • Egoistic relative deprivation: derived from comparison with other similar individuals.
    • Fraternalistic relative deprivation: derived from comparisons with other groups.
    I just don't have many studies that go with it.

    Berkowitz (1972) – subjective frustration led to LA riots where one area of the city felt less privileged than another area.

    Studies support that fraternalistic rather than egoistic relative deprivation cause aggression.

    Abeles (1976) – USA black and white groups, higher-class black groups felt more deprived because they were more aware.

    Walker & Mann (1987) – Unemployed workers in Australia were militant when their group didn’t get what they deserve. They reported symptoms of stress when they were egoistically deprived.
