Influence on capitalistic way of life
Weber recalls Puritan idea of the calling and asceticism. This remained as the base for the development of capitalistic way of life among the people. Basically, asceticism is against the spontaneous enjoyment in one’s life. This is because of the point that it would increase the distance of the person from work which is strictly prohibited by God.
In addition to this point, Puritans do not wish expenses on entertainment. The entertainment aspects that encourage and propagate the glory of God are accepted while the rest are strictly prohibited. This is spread to the people as the duty to hold the responsibility assigned to them by God. Asceticism has strongly opposed the greed and dishonesty of people (Green, 1959).
Justification of influences
Puritans have strongly believed that proper economic effects were witnessed only when the religious movements entered the ground with high degrees of enthusiasm. Unfortunately, the utilitarian worldliness evolved. This religious asceticism gave way for the businessmen and workers to work in the same environment. Although there is a presence of inequality between the people, it is the design created by God for that industry.
