Migrant Journal is a six-issue publication exploring the circulation of people, goods, information, even fauna and flora around the world and the transformative impact they have on space.

ISSUE 2: WIRED CAPITAL

The contradiction between restrictions imposed on the movement of people and the acceleration in the circulation of goods, services, money—in one word capital—boosted by free-trade spaces and mechanisms is reaching new levels of paradox and absurdity. The spaces and frictions this contradiction creates will be the topic of Migrant Journal’s second issue: Wired Capital.

From mega platform built in Asia exploiting oil in the Arctic circle to the infrastructure of high-frequency trading, from Myanmar workers working in the Thai fish industry to Romanian posted workers in Germany’s meat factories, to globally-spread offshore accounts and the role of telegraph in first worldwide financial crisis.
