  A term coined by Inglehart (1977) for societies in which there has been a \'cultural shift\' in political attitudes away from issues of production and distribution. The combination of affluence and a strong welfare state erodes the salience of class-based politics (see cleavage), which are replaced by approaches reflecting environmental concerns along with what Inglehart terms \'orientations towards work, fertility, and consumption patterns\'. (RJJ)
