Income Inequality and the Sinking
of the Titanic
PBS video was so interesting, especially when it reported
that the sinking of the Titanic gave the greatest
exposure of income inequality during the beginning of the
20th century. The highest loss of life came from the
second and third class passengers while the wealthy,
first class had the best chance of escaping death. In
other words, those with money were in the best location
on the ship for survival (upper decks) and those with the
least amount were located on the lower decks and were
literally locked-down by gates in the third class
compartments, so they could not escape to the top where
the lifeboats were stored. It makes me wonder if we are
not cruising upon a Titanic today. Those with wealth at
the top flourish while those at the bottom, who cannot
get by, perish. thinkingblue
watch the video at this link:
The Titanic was carrying 2,223
passengers on board when it sank, and out of those 1,517
died. The guests were split into first, second, and third
class, and the higher classes had an advantage when it
came to boarding lifeboats and being closer to the top of
the deck where the lifeboats were being deployed. In
addition, a locked gate that separated second and third
class sections inhibited the escape of many third class
As a result, of all of these
factors, there were as many deaths in the third class as
the first and second classes put together. Most of the
Titanic survivors were women, children, or members of the
higher class within the Titanic.
As far as actual numbers go, 130
first class passengers died, 166 second class passengers
died, and 536 third class passengers died. Most of the
third class women and children died and most of the first
and second class women and children lived. The highest
casualty rate aboard the titanic was men. There was a
strict women and children first rule when it came to
boarding the lifeboats.
disaster: class division and inequality. One hundred
years has anything really changed?
is my 100th blog post on WordPress and the 100th
anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic on her
maiden voyage. To commemorate both of these
anniversaries, I decided to write this
blog around the theme of this
maritime disaster. A topic that still evokes
passion today, as it did back then in the previous
century. It is the subject of class: social class
and the huge inequality between rich and poor; the divide
of wealth against poverty, privilege against opportunity,
social fortune against hardship.
