Abstract

My ongoing Ph.D. research seeks to continue the investigations carried out in the Masters studies about the formation of the peripheral areas of Jardim Ibirapuera and its surroundings, as a particular process of territorialisation of capital, forged in São Paulo from the reproduction of migrant workers and their respective families, dating from the 1960's onwards. I seek, however, to deepen my investigation about the transformations in the mobility of labour experienced by the family members dwelling in this peripheral neighbourhood, seeking to understand what relations they have established with the forms of use of space and time that are currently territorialised in Jardim Ibirapuera and immediate surroundings.As part of such practices one can highlight the expansion of an informal real estate market, of apparently local scale; and an extraordinary increase in the so-called micro-enterprises, mostly managed by the children and grandchildren of the first families to arrive in Jardim Ibirapuera, mobilising the savings reified in the form of homes and in a kind of investment and work opportunity. And, finally, the advance of financial transactions between families dwelling in Jardim Ibirapuera and surrounding areas, be them as consumers of goods traded by these micro-entrepreneurs, be them as demand for land and housing, which have kept tight links with the so-called financial inclusion of a population historically segregated from mass consumption.From my point of view, such practices perhaps express a crisis in the process of territorialisation of capital that has determined the formation of this peripheral area, at the same time as they seem to indicate fundamental changes in the contemporary process of reproduction of capital in their national and worldwide scales.
