The money, in its differents ways, change the nature and the territorial labour division in town. The upper circuit of urban economy becomes, nowadays, reason and effect of the global financial system, while the lower circuit, indirectly formed by hegemonic labour division, recently turns interesting to financial money. The financial system capillarits itself in the town and gets the lower circuit. We desire to understand the ways and laws of these process through credits of financial instituts and personal borrows in São Paulo City.
