The new class is also used as a polemic term by critics of countries that followed the Soviet type of communism to describe the privileged ruling class of bureaucrats and Communist Party functionaries which arose in these states. Generally, the group known in the Soviet Union as the Nomenklatura conforms to the theory of the new class. Earlier the term was applied to other emerging strata of the society.

Milovan ─Éilas' New Class theory was also used extensively by anti-communist commentators in the West, in their criticism of the Communist states during the Cold War.

New class is also used as a term in late 1960s post-industrial sociology.
