Southern Futures: Thinking Through Emerging Markets

Wed, 09/17/2014 - 18:01

The Global South is undergoing a dramatic transformation in the eyes of the world. It has not only been given a new name – emerging market – that signals fresh territories found desirable by global investors and policymakers, it also hints at escalation and acceleration in the pace of history long deemed to be locked in a static temporal space. The seductive sign of emerging market now stands for extractable natural resources, cheap techno-friendly labor and a vast consumer base waiting to be fully untapped. Most of all it stands for the magical promise of economic ‘growth’ that has become a much longed for and elusive goal in Euro-America after the financial crisis. In a series of roundtable debates, we will rethink the language of 'rise' and 'emergence' of Africa, this after a decade of 'rising' Asia, and the ways in which it breaks down the established epistemic constructs. What might this transformation mean for Africa when new Afro-Asian connections through investments and business enterprises are fast redrawing the Global South. And what might this new Global South tell us about the future of capitalism itself.
