Newyorkology of Tech Capitalism


The paper stresses the richness, the beautiful writing and formidable ethnography of New York innovation complex by Sharon Zukin, showing both the networks, the imagination and the dark side of this complex. It shows some of micro dynamics of radical urban economic development and physical transformation of New York of the past two decades. However, the book is also an example of self centred newyorkology. The lack of conceptual framework, the incomplete analysis and the New York City focus also leaves the reader somehow unconvinced by some developments.
