‘Predatory Mobility’

August 13, 2012 § Leave a comment

‘Global capital in its contemporary form is characterised by strategies of predatory mobility (across both time and space) that have vastly compromised the capacities of actors in single locations even to understand, much less anticipate or resist, these strategies. Though states…vary in how and whether they are mere instruments of global capital, they have certainly been eroded as sites of political, economic and cultural sovereignty’

(Arjun Appadurai (2001), ‘Grassroots Globalisation and the Research Imagination’ in  Globalisation, Duke University, p. 18)
