The Spatio-temporal Dynamics of Capitalist Landscape in India

The conceptual delineation of “spatial compression” in critical writings of Karl Marx and David Harvey is mapped to explain how contemporary capitalist practices use “time” creatively to overcome the spatial constraints to profit-making.

Thus the tangible manifestations of restructuring time and space in the present-day capitalist landscape of India are analysed.
