Social classes under capitalism: the bourgeoisie The dominant class under capitalism—called the bourgeoisie—is defined by the amount and type of economic resources that they control. The bourgeoisie gain ownership of the means of production through the possession of property such as land, companies, machines, money, banks, etc. However, often the bourgeoisie can control economic resources without necessarily being owners—for example, when corporate stocks are sold to thousands of small shareholders and only a group of big businessmen control the company.

Class power can be instituted in many ways; furthermore, it can be justified and organized through a series of institutions, norms, habits and ideas. In the Middle Ages, for example, feudal lords were considered noble due to their birth line and were given the duty of protecting the population from wars; this is why peasants had to pay taxes or work for them for free. In India, it was believed that certain people who were considered descendents of gods had more importance than others, which is why they formed part of a superior caste.
