(p.44) 2 Financial Imaginaries
The Urban Apparatus

Reinhold Martin

University of Minnesota Press

The second essay explores the interplay of abstraction and concreteness in financial systems, in urban slums, and in luxury real estate development. For more than a century, the social relations of the metropolis have been linked analytically to financial circulation, a connection that is clearly audible in the phrase “global city.”
