englischStatus symbols undergo constant changes depending on the ‘zeitgeist’ and the social reference group. For something to be considered a status symbol, access to it must be limited—it's all a question of having what others can't have. But what can one exclusively own in an affluent society? And what impact do technological advancements have on status symbols? In twelve chapters, 16 authors discuss old, changed or unprecedented status symbols. They examine tangible status symbols such as high-tech devices and mobility as well as intangible status symbols that can be found in corporations, art, social networks or the world of gaming. What are your status symbols? Find out in this fascinating book!
