Chinese Consumers Opt For Bigger TVs

As calls mount for Chinese consumers to spend more to help fix global imbalances, it appears they have learnt at least one lesson from their US counterparts - bigger is better when it comes to flat-screen televisions.

During China's Golden Week national holidays this month, a shopping season similar to Thanksgiving in the US, the average size of flat-screen TV sets sold was above 37 inches - firmly ahead of the US average, according to industry executives and analysts.
