Michael Goldman talk

"How the Financial Crisis is Reshaping 'World Cities"

by Michael Goldman

Associate Professor of Sociology,

University of Minnesota

This talk highlights a global shift in capital flows, post-2007: from Northern hedge/derivatives firms into real estate and infrastructure projects in Southern cities such as Mumbai and Bangalore. We will discuss how urban planning in our global South 'world cities' is being influenced by these toxic forms of financial speculation.
