Planetary Mine: Territories of Extraction under Late Capitalism
Martín Arboleda is based at the School of Sociology of Universidad Diego Portales, Santiago de Chile. His research builds upon the fields of urban studies, critical theory, and the political economy of global capitalism. He is the author of the book Planetary Mine: Territories of Extraction under Late Capitalism (Verso, 2020), as well as of several scholarly articles on the political economy of urbanization and of natural resource extraction. These publications have been aimed at broadening the level of analysis of extractive processes beyond primary commodity production narrowly considered, revealing the role that circuits of finance, logistics, and labor, among others, perform in the political economy of natural resources across various spatial scales.
