The outlines of a society based on the free use of time are only beginning to appear in the interstices of, and in opposition to, the present social order. Its watchword may be defined as; let us work less so that we all may work and do more things by ourselves in our free time. Socially useful labour, distributed over all those who are willing and able to work, will thus cease to be anyone’s exclusive or leading activity. Instead, people’s major occupation may be one or a number of self-defined activities, carried out not for money but for the interest, pleasure or benefit involved.

— Gorz, André (1982). “Farewell to the working class: an essay on post-industrial socialism”.

A subculture of consumption comes into existence as people identify with certain objects or consumption activities, through those objects or activities, identify with other.  The unifying consumption patterns are governed by a unique ethos or set of common values. The structure of the subculture, which governs social interactions within it, and which we now address, is a direct reflection of the commitment of individuals to the ethos.

— Schouten, J.; McAlexander, J. H. (1995). “Subcultures of Consumption: An Ethnography of the New Bikers”.

Also, consumer culture theory.
