Description

This talk tracks the speculative ventures of the precariat class in the capital city of Jakarta, Indonesia, against the backdrop of highrise apartments, commodity consumption, and other signs of aspiration. Of particular interest are the links between the expansion of credit regimes, the introduction of new sharing economies, startup enterprises, and alternative visions for community, as the precariat enact mobility and urban citizenship by engaging in risk-laden living and financial arrangements.
