  1. 1. Cultural Distinctions

  3. 3.  The measure of social inequality in cultures  Think about this - how do employees where you work talk with their boss? What is the interaction like between your family?  The United States is a low power distance country. What does this mean? Do you agree with this? What are some countries that might be high power distance?
