Quick note on Donald Black

Reading “The behavior of law” by Donald Black, who asserts in Chapter 1 that “Law varies inversely with other [non-governmental] social control”, meaning negatively correlates, and in chapter 2 that “Law varies directly with resource stratification,” meaning positively correlates.

Put those two things together, and I am not sure I have learned anything at all about how law relates to stratification.
