his needs. This was absolutely a story of dominance.Also in your post, state which theory (pluralist or dominance) you personally ascribe to. Did thearguments you read on this discussion topic change your perspective?Personally, I feel much more inclined to the pluralist society because it feels like a way to evenlydistribute the power.“Apluralistic societyis one having multiple groups and institutions through whichpower is diffused. Within such a society no entity or interest has overriding power, and each may check andbalance others” (Steiner & Steiner, 2012).I feel this creates less opportunity for corruption as there aremany chiefs, not just one such as the Rockefeller situation. The dominance theory seems much more likelyto happen and more common in the corporate world.References:Pratt, J.A.(June, 2012).Exxon and the Control of Oil.The Journal of American History.Retrieved from:?vid=2&sid=5fd30bc3-8ed2-4576-9812-193d7a89148e%40sdc-v-sessmgr03Steiner, J & Steiner G.(2012).Business, Government and Society:A Managerial Perspective.(13th Ed.)Retrieved from:
