Change is usually caused by the introduction of new ideas that have sociopolitical or sociocultural implications or come in response to technological innovations that have economic or organizational applications. Change may occur first at the intellectual level, creating a new state of mind, which in turn labors, often hard, to change the actual states of sociopolitical and socioeconomic affairs on the ground. Change may start by the introduction of a new technology in the economic arena, changing the economic order, which works in turn to slowly change the prevailing state of mind.

Technological developments that precipitate change, such as the invention of the printing press, the car, and the Internet, tend to follow an evolutionary rather than a revolutionary path, and, therefore, they seldom clash with the basic interests of the predominant social forces in society.
