"Hi Luka, That's an interesting point! If you look at the last few years on the OECD page ( US data), business confidence ended up trailing consumer confidence. So, maybe that means that people in the business news bubble were the last to…"

Consumer Confidence and the Economic Media-- Economic Cycles Graphics from OECD/NYT

The graphic shows contracting and expanding business cycles from the 1970s to the present; the first page shows what appears to be a two-year old's drawing, which then in later pages resolves into a picture of smaller and greater economic fluctuations over the last thirty years.http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2009/07/02/business/economy/20090705-cycles-graphic.htmlThe OECD's link offers…See More

Hi, ended up here bc I just got your dissertation abstract (I'm an alum) and thought it sounded really interesting and was looking to see if I could find anything you've written...  I guess your defense is in 15 minutes, so good luck!

 

I'm not a China person except I seem to be reading lots of books about it lately, I guess out of an interest in "alternative modernities" and decentering the west from the narrative of capitalism.  If you are still looking for ethnographies of urban China, two things I enjoyed which are not exactly that but are very on the ground are The Spiral Road (about a "village" but it seems like it is becoming a small city)

http://www.amazon.com/Spiral-Road-Communist-Development-Conflict/dp/0813334470

and Country Driving (not an ethnography but really interesting)
