Sen and Bourdieu: understanding inequality

Dina Bowman
Not surprisingly, for those who wanted a job, but were unable to get one, paid employment was more important. These people desperately wanted the financial, social and symbolic capital that can come from paid employment.

I want a good job and everything, but lifestyle and everything is really important to me as well. I?d like to be able to earn enough money to live comfortably, so that?s probably a huge thing, because I hate struggling all the time. Just being able to have the holidays, just work normal hours, which I class as Monday to Friday, sort of 8 to 4, 8 to 5, or whatever?that sort of a thing, like not weekends. Just so you can have time with friends and family, and go away and stuff.

there is an urgent need to embrace broader frameworks that enable an understanding of the social and cultural constraints on choice and the processes that shape the persistence of disadvantage and poverty.

Dean (2009, p.275) observes that the ?capabilities approach is well suited to a consensual approach, but a politics of need should be about struggle, not consensus?. He argues that, by devaluing non-market aspects of life, the capability approach does not address the processes by which ?capitalism distorts our perceptions and our experience of work?. Further, he suggests that within global capitalism the ability to chose a life we have reason to value ?may necessarily be achieved at the expense of others? freedom? (2009, p.273).

A capability approach is useful in measuring and evaluating inequality but, as Ingrid Robeyns (2003, p.64) points out, ?it is not a fully specified theory that gives us complete answers to all our normative questions?. Further, she observes that ?normative frameworks always depend on explanatory or ontological views of human nature and society, and Sen?s capability approach does not defend one particular world-view?. But Sen is policy focused?and explicitly engages with social and economic frameworks.

For example, John had come to Australia with his wife some 40 years earlier. Together they developed a successful small business, which they had to sell when he became seriously ill. Since then, a series of tragedies and misfortunes had caused him to go ?from being at the top of the town, to the bottom end of town?. For John, knowing the rules of the game wasn?t sufficient: he needed the economic capital to engage in the social fields to which he had been accustomed.

However, he also argues that even where crises cause the world not to appear ?natural?, those in power will seek to manage understandings and preserve ?a universe of that which is taken for granted? (Bourdieu 1977, p.170).

He goes on to argue that ?If we are really concerned with inequalities that matter, we have to take an interest in disparities in political and social position, in addition to other aspects of inequality, of which income distribution is a part? (1997, p.159). This argument is important, but there is a danger that it can be used to divert attention from the need for greater income equality.

Sen?s focus on self-help, self-reliance and agency may be a clue to his growing popularity. Hartley Dean characterises the capabilities approach as ?in essence a restatement? of the liberal ideal ?which assumes that citizens are constituted as formally free and equal and that participation in the public sphere is open upon the same terms to everybody? (Dean 2009, p.271).
