About CLCB

Where Business Meets Culture…In China

ChinaLuxCultureBiz (“CLCB”) was started in March 2009 with the purpose of compiling the latest news about current trends and crucial developments in China’s luxury, business, arts, and cultural markets.

Over the past decade, China has emerged as a global economic power. With a middle class now roughly equivalent to the entire U.S. population (and growing), China’s consumer market is among the world’s largest. But for Westerners looking to do business there — or to simply understand the contemporary culture — China can be confusing, contradictory, fast-paced, and contentious.

ChinaLuxCultureBiz looks at the intersection of business and culture in China: the ins and outs of business development there with an eye toward the upscale consumer market, as well as the business of culture — from museums and contemporary art to performance, public events, and more.

CLCB is for anyone looking to stay on top of business and culture in China today.

  4. Since the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, the western world has been eager, more than ever before, to understand China. In The Beijing of Possibilities, a captivating new collection of stories, author Jonathan Tel captures the mysterious ways that the past and the present are interwined in modern China. Tel’s imaginative style has been called “part W. G. Sebald and part Italo Calvino “ by Publishers Weekly. In this new collection he gives the reader startling insights into the complexities of life in Beijing that are sometimes funny, sometimes sad, but always fascinating.

    Tel conjures up a widely diverse range of characters, illuminating the maelstrom of present-day Beijing while effortlessly juxtaposing history, politics, myth, and fantasy. From the Gorillagram messenger who becomes a national hero, the Ming Dynasty princess posting her first online profile, to buskers and pickpockets with their own poignant stories, a thrice-reincarnated adopted girl, a high-tech couple discovering in their apartment a cache of secret objects hidden in a wall during the Maoist period, Tel hypnotizes the western reader with a unique view into another world. Uncannily, it all feels very strange but also oddly familiar and universal.

    Jonathan Tel is the author of the novel Freud’s Alphabet (2003) and the short story collection Arafat’s Elephant (2002). His stories have been published in The New Yorker, Granta, and Zoetrope. He has worked as a quantum physicist and an opera librettist. While in New York he writes about Beijing, and while in Beijing about New York.

    Please contact me if you would like a review copy of this entrancing portrait of today’s Beijing. I think you and your readers will find it a very entertaining and exceptionally intelligent route into the new life of China.

    Best regards,

  5. Can you provide me your editor’s email address so we may keep you informed of Luxury Marketing Council news?

    thank you

  6. Your blog has possibilities. I’m glad to have discovered it. But the name “ChinaLuxCultureBiz” is geeky. You need to think of a savvy, memorable name. Please don’t take this as a negative. Practically all famous Hollywood stars have had their names changed.
