ABSTRACT

It is possible for people to consume material and spiritual goods since they have been produced. The form and substance of consumption have also changed after the development and transformation from traditional society and industrial society to post-industrial society, which makes consumption no longer a pure economic behavior but more integrated with cultural and social factors. This paper aims to point out the practical significance and defects of Baudrillard's theory by analyzing it.
