The concept of classes according to Weber was a bit Marxian in context relating to an economic interest group as a relation to the markets and not the social status group. However, his approaches are not Marxian ultimately because he tends to focus on the economic distribution instead of the means of production (Cox, 1950). He describes a class as people that share the same class or situation. According to Weber’s theory of stratification, there are three types of social mobility. A class has individuals with similar incomes as well as wealth. A party has people with the same amount of power per person while status is individuals with the same prestige.
