    Moreover, this proletariat is increasingly mobile and decreasingly regulated by states. The polarization of wealth, including both the amassing of huge fortunes at the upper end of the class structure, and the increasing impoverishment of many people and countries at the lower end, is a fact. The dismantling of the national arenas upon which class conflicts traditionally raged inhibits the development of class consciousness, which in turn opens up a subjective space increasingly filled by alternative identities and agendas: gender, race, ethnicity, and, particularly, generation emerge as the salient tropes around which individuals build self-consciousness. There is a stunning moment in the film when Ferguson is interviewing the Dean of the Business School at Columbia University, and pressing him about his failure to reveal his potential and real conflicts of interest. The separation of history from geography and the supremacy of time over space has the effect of producing images of society cut off from their material environments. I find all of this encouraging on a number of counts.

    This neglect of nature by capitalism's major critic has obscured the dynamics of capitalist wealth formation. It will only be out of some complicated conjuncture of people and forces like this — between wealthy and powerful renegades like Ferguson, powerful media like the New York Times and smart reporters like Sewell Chananthropologists and others writing and teaching about what is going on, and ordinary people themselves, in their infinite practical wisdom, in every part of the globe — that some kinds of solutions may emerge. The book will interest anthropologists, political geographers, economists, sociologists, and political theorists. Seales convincingly argues that when Bono speaks for Africa, he speaks for religious, cultural, and economic systems far more complex—and far less empowering—than his identity as a rock-and-roll saint may imply.

    I confess it is easy to be pessimistic about the state of the world today, and very hard to see a way out. It will only be out of some complicated conjuncture of people and forces like this — between wealthy and powerful renegades like Ferguson, powerful media like the New York Times and smart reporters like Sewell Chananthropologists and others writing and teaching about what is going on, and ordinary people themselves, in their infinite practical wisdom, in every part of the globe — that some kinds of solutions may emerge. In a fine double act the Comaroffs, and their gifted contributors, provide us with brilliant ethnographic and ethical accounts of a world-system whose emergent structures are both older and newer than the globalizing jargon of our times. In exploring the material and cultural dimensions of the Age of Millennial Capitalism, the contributors interrogate the so-called crisis of the nation-state, how the triumph of the free market obscures rising tides of violence and cultures of exclusion, and the growth of new forms of identity politics.

Jameson, Fredric. My argument in this essay is that dominant discourses of globalization constitute a circuitous modality of Occidentalism that operates through the occlusion rather than the affirmation of the radical difference between the West and its others.

We can see it in the statistics, which are apparently robust and indisputable. I find all of this encouraging on a number of counts.
