Bobos in Paradise – Wikipedia
It was first published in The word boboBrooks’ most famously used term, is an abbreviated form of the words bourgeois and bohemiansuggesting a fusion of two distinct social classes the counter-culturalhedonistic and artistic bohemian, and the white collarcapitalist bourgeois.
The term is used by Brooks to describe the s successors of the yuppies.
Often of the corporate upper classthey claim highly tolerant views of others, purchase expensive and exotic items, and believe American society to be meritocratic. The term is also widely used in France, from where it originates.
The thesis is that during the late s a new establishment arose that represented a fusion between the bourgeois world of capitalist enterprise and the hippie values of the bohemian counterculture. Bobos are noted for their aversion to conspicuous consumption while emphasizing the “necessities” of life.
Brooks argues that they feel guilty in the way typical of the so-called ” greed era ” of the s so they prefer to spend extravagantly on kitchens, showers, and other common facilities of everyday life. They “feel” for the labor and working class and often brookss American-made goods rather than less expensive imports from developing nations.
Bobos often relate to money as a means rather than an end; they do not disdain money but use it to achieve their ends rather than considering wealth as a desirable brioks in itself.
Increasingly, it is a status symbol for cosmopolitan bobos, and it is being exploited by the marketers who cater to them. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
