Outline and briefly evaluate the view that capitalism is a strong influence on an individual’s identity (20 marks)

Could someone seriously help me out here. I've been assigned this question by my teacher and cannot for the life of me work out the link between capitalism and identity ? I've searched it up and searched through the textbook and the original question had social class instead of capitalism but my teacher clearly changed it to adapt to the work we were doing. My exam board is OCR

Hey! I did AQA A-Level sociology so I'm not familiar with the OCR spec but from a quick Google, this seems to be under the Socialisation, Culture, and Identity option/topic.

If you Google OCR A-Level sociology Socialisation, Culture, and Identity candidate style answers - you should see results for a PDF document explaining how you should approach these questions. From my understanding, you must define what is capitalism and for candidates in the top band, you need to link capitalism to relevant sociologists/sociological theories. I would obviously talk about Marxist views on capitalism and because the question requires you to 'briefly evaluate' you need to contrast/offer a critique of Marxist views on capitalism. If you look at the sample candidate answers for the top band, it should show you clearly how the examiner wants you to answer the question. Hope this helps.
