The end of Keynesianism, Fordism, modernism, Marxism, and indeed of history, have all been confidently proclaimed. Undoubtedly, the 1980s did witness a pronounced transformation of the urban built environment in the mature economies, as substantial in its economic significance as it was stunning in its recast skyline. Some contend that it was the decade ‘in which the industrial city finally shook off the last traces of its 19th-century self and mutated into a completely new species’ (Sudjic, 1992, p.

In this context, traditional Keynesian correctives were said to expand money supply, thereby fuelling inflation and currency devaluation, leading in turn to escalating interest rates and trade deficits, all fostering weaker investment and higher unemployment. Subsequent deflated economic activity boosted welfare dependency, particularly in the most mature urban-industrial spaces, thereby accentuating the fiscal burden. Critics charged that Keynesian ‘fine-tuning’ had proved to be not only more complicated and fallible than supposed, but also more about political art than economic science.

In other words, the informal—constituting those constituencies most excluded, or in a ‘state of exception’, from the ordered relations of market and state (Agamben, 1998)—cannot be dismissed as the condition of subaltern ‘outcasts’ in twilight zone habitats (Wacquant, 2008), but rather comprises a valid mode of urbanisation (Roy, 2006). Thus, informal urbanism can nest within the formal city, and the inter-penetration of both is fashioned via the growing significance of three population sets: first, of migrants to cities, most evident in the developing world; second, of immigrants to cities in both developing and developed worlds, and related diasporas communities; and third, of the ways the excluded in both places tend to be consigned to segregated precincts marked by deprivation and social insulation.
