What is Status Symbol


A status symbol is an object which is meant to signify its owners'
high social and economic standing. Although which things act as
status symbols changes over time, they are always linked to the
primary differences between the upper and lower classes within the
society. In capitalist societies, status symbols are most often
tied to monetary wealth.



BREAKING DOWN Status Symbol

Expensive goods like luxury vehicles and large houses are mostly
out of reach for lower economic classes, so these items serve as
status symbols indicating that their owners are able to afford
their extremely high prices. Since much of the utility derived
from status symbols comes from their high price, an increased
price for a status symbol may actually increase its demand,
rather than diminish it. A product which exhibits this phenomenon
is known as a Veblen good.

STATUS SYMBOLS?




Some examples of status symbols include designer clothes and accessories,
home swimming pools, fine wines, driving a car with a leather interior
and even following a healthy diet or going to the gym. Simply being "well"
can be a status symbol because gym memberships, dietary supplements, organic
produce and spa treatments all come at considerable financial cost.
