Résumé
EN
Leisure and cultural consumption are today considered key components in a person ’ s – or a nation ’ s – quality of life. Despite the historic decline in the hours spent at paid labor, current trends in leisure time are unclear. Recent developments suggest a possible halt in the road toward the leisure society and a reversal of the leisure/status gradient. However, the sheer availability of leisure time is not the whole story. Scarcity in leisure time can be offset by a more intensive use of it. As discussed in this article, such use relies on financial and cultural resources which are associated with education and, to some extent, with nationality.
