India is divided into three consumer segments: the first 100 million, mainly the urban or affluent Indians and are the main targets of indulgent e-commerce brands; the second 100 million classified as the aspiring class; and the last a little over a billion — three segments he calls the splurgers, strivers and survivors.

Weekend edition—Life after Lehman, fashion’s new look, inside Alexa – Quartz Daily Brief — Quartz
Since the financial crisis, there has been a drop-off in self-employment among 20- and 30-somethings.

Children of the Great Depression were wary of the stock market for their entire lives. The same seems true for millennials, at least so far. The data show that they choose to put less of their money into stocks than previous generations—much less.

How peer-to-peer lending turned middle-class Chinese dreamers into angry protesters
Lack of transparency regarding how the platforms were using pooled money for loans made it hard for investors to judge what was happening—and the controlled nature of China’s internet may also have played a role.

“Because of the Great Firewall there is just less information—that’s not just a judgement, that’s a fact.”
“The average Chinese citizen is operating without complete information and that fuels a lot of what we see as very risky behavior,”

Protesters in China are taking enormous risks, such as facing detention, and constant scrutiny in the future—even if they don’t manage to hold their protest. WeChat and other chat app groups formed by investors were identified and blocked, and participants were barred from purchasing air and train tickets. Yet accounts from multiple news reports and social media suggest thousands may have managed to make it to Beijing.
