Chapter 3 claims that the same global economic changes that triggered capital flight away from Los Angeles and other U.S. cities beginning in the 1970s also provided economic opportunities for local private and public leaders to invest in transpacific trade corridors. This mix between the discourse of crisis and the material geographies of a shifting global capitalism set the stage for a new spatial politics that culminated in a regional development regime centered on logistics. Yet environmental and labor advocates answered by arguing that the market sometimes must be pushed—often screaming—into doing the right thing. By understanding these intersections—between the local and the global, the discursive and the material—we can glean a better understanding of how metropolitan space is produced.
