The book revolves around the key question of why the fates of cities and capitalism have become so inextricable in times of globalization. Looking at such different forces as financialization, innovative entrepreneurship, the housing sector, consumption, technology, the experience economy, the book offers a comparative analysis of the ways in which urban economies and societies reflect and at the same time act as engines of global capitalism in a biopolitical age. In particular, the book shows how post-recession cities are witnessing a shift from an entrepreneurialisation of governance structures, as was theorised by David Harvey in the late 1980s, to an entrepreneurialisation of society and the self, enabled by digital technologies and related communicative networks.

Abstract

The book revolves around the key question of why the fates of cities and capitalism have become so inextricable in times of globalization. Looking at such different forces as financialization, innovative entrepreneurship, the housing sector, consumption, technology, the experience economy, the book offers a comparative analysis of the ways in which urban economies and societies reflect and at the same time act as engines of global capitalism in a biopolitical age. In particular, the book shows how post-recession cities are witnessing a shift from an entrepreneurialisation of governance structures, as was theorised by David Harvey in the late 1980s, to an entrepreneurialisation of society and the self, enabled by digital technologies and related communicative networks.
