One way to understand the new bourgeoisie is to start in the changes of production and what can be seen as a "new spirit of capitalism". In an analysis of management literature, Luc Boltanski och Ève Chiapello search after the "new spirit" that permeates today's capitalism and bourgeoisie. It is a spirit that is more concerned with the alternative cultures of the 1970's, and their critique of hierarchies, rather than with the strict bourgeoisie of the fin-de-siècle that Max Weber referred to in his writings on the spirit of capitalism.
