“Owning Community: Social Class and Consumption in a New Urban Neighborhood”

This study investigates the production and consumption of traditional community in a New Urban neighborhood. We explore the ways in which social stratification may threaten or reinforce the ideal of a neo-traditional community, and the role of conspicuous consumption in influencing consumer perceptions of the collective neighborhood identity.
