Porter Award presentation


The 2010 John Porter Memorial Book prize was awarded to John Goyder for his book The Prestige Squeeze, published by McGill-Queen's University Press, 2009 The notion of ―guns and butter‖ revolves around finding the right mix between polar opposites such as spending on national defence (guns) and civilian consumer spending (butter). Adapted to sociology, guns might stand for inequality, butter for equality. Outlining the results of his book The Prestige Squeeze, John Goyder explains how respondents to the occupational prestige survey believe that while inequality in occupational rewards (guns) is necessary, current occupational income inequalities are too stretched and are lacking in equality (butter).
