Subject: Re: cultural and symbolic capital?

I believe that Bourdieu's concepts of symbolic and cultural capital, in their
most simple form, represent peoples'  worth in a predominantly service
economy. This notion of 'worth' suggests a model of class which is based on
'capital' movements through social space.
How do you think Bourdieu's notions of symbolic and cultural capital relate to
how our class identities are produced in modern consumer culture?
