This book explores how urban spaces are not only remade by and through finance, finance is also remade by and through cities. It investigates how nonfinancial actors, such as public bureaucrats, urban planners, and the media are actively involved in the social constitution of what finance is. It moves beyond Anglo Saxon settings to explore the making of urban financialization in the Global South, exploring how this process has unfolded in Brazil. Since the mid-1980s the country has been marked by complex and contradictory processes of neoliberalization, decentralization, re-democratization and institutional-legal strengthening of frameworks for urban and regional planning.
