Description
TERMS AND CONCEPTS 1. Time-space compression: From Doreen Massey Essay, Time-space compression is a new phase in our world; new understanding of space. It refers to the movement and communication across space, to the geographical stretching-out of social relations, and to our experience of all this. Everything is speeding up, eg. dinner comes from produce sourced around the world. This was characterized by Marx as annihilation of space by time. The new impetus is further classified as time-space compression by David Harvey. 2. Rentier State: A term used to classify states which derive all or a substantial portion of their national (oil) revenues from the rent of indigenous resources to external clients. Rewards of income and wealth for the rentier states do not come as the result of work but rather are the results of chance or situation. 3. Risk society: From Ullrich Beck, a term emerged during the 1980s that describes the manner in which modern society organizes in response to risk. It is a systematic way of dealing with hazards and insecurities induced and introduced by modernization itself.
