The Innovation Complex w/ Sharon Zukin De Dépendance Podcast

    • Maatschappij en cultuur

In this episode we talk to sociologist Sharon Zukin about an intrinsically urban phenomenon we have been witnessing all around us over the past decade: The rise of start-up ecosystems, tech hubs,  accelerators, and venture capital investors which have transformed the city into what Zukin calls an ‘Innovation Complex’, which is also the title of her latest book. We will be talking about its origins, the main species inhabiting this new ecosystem, and the often negative effects on the livability of our cities. And we will talk about the belief system that underpins it. How did it become such a powerful narrative for city governments to follow?
