  2. This shopping culture led to mass consumption

History and the upheavals it has brought have definitely shaped the ways of life and the cultures over the centuries.

The modern capitalist societies developed a particular shopping culture over the years, especially after the big events of the 20th century such as the World Wars, the Great Depression and others.
