Moral Identity and Competition in a Working Class Neighborhood

The home consumption practices of working class consumers are examined based on ethnographic study in a mobile home park. Within this resource constrained environment, different moral identities and habituses shape the community members’ evaluations of themselves and their neighbors, as well as their consumption, preferences, perceived capacities, goals, and dreams.
