Descriere RO

The subprime crash of 2008 revealed a fragile, unjust, and unsustainable economy built on retail consumption, low-wage jobs, and fictitious capital. Economic crisis, finance capital, and global commodity chains transformed Southern California just as Latinxs and immigrants were turning California into a majority-nonwhite state. In┬áInland Shift, Juan D. De Lara uses the growth of Southern CaliforniaÔÇÖs logistics economy, which controls the movement of goods, to examine how modern capitalism was shaped by and helped to transform the regionÔÇÖs geographies of race and class. While logistics provided a roadmap for capital and the state to transform Southern California, it also created pockets of resistance among labor, community, and environmental groups who argued that commodity distribution exposed them to economic and environmental precarity.
