📺 Welcome to the 44th episode of the Circular Metabolism Podcast: The role of Cities in a World Economy with Prof. Saskia Sassen 📺.
🏙️ On today’s episode we will talk circulation of flows amongst cities but also between cities and their hinterlands. This time we will not only talk about material and energy flows but also capital, information, and skilled labour flows. We will underline why cities are at the epicentre of the global economy and how they have become new geographies of extraction by grabbing resources, distributing through a global market and leaving dead land behind.
🎓 To talk about these topics today I have Saskia Sassen. She is the Robert S. Lynd Professor of Sociology at Columbia University. She is a student of cities, immigration, and states in the world economy, with inequality, gendering and digitization three key variables running though her work. She is the author of eight books and the editor or co-editor of three books including “The Global City; New York, London Tokyo, or Expulsions: Brutality and Complexity in the Global Economy”.
