This concluding chapter considers the following questions. How can the dynamics of production-consumption in the luxury hotel aid in the better understanding of the legitimacy of class inequality in the service economy? How can the investigations into the link between service work and class can be further examined? And what are the possibilities for social critique and change? Among the topics that are revisited and re-examined in this final chapter are: service work and class entitlements; commodity fetishism and interactive normalization; and social reproduction.
