That is, the urban changes as immediate or mediate consequence of alterations of the economic relations and politics – and, therefore, of the space relations of exchange – are old phenomena e, in more than the times, ' ' parecidos' '. Giovanni Arrighi, in its seminal text ' ' Long Century XX? Money, Power and the Origins of Our Tempos' ' (2006), part of a idea-key of Fernand Braudel, express in the trilogy ' ' Capitalismo and Civilizao' ' – according to which ' ' the financial capitalism is not a period of training particular of the world-wide capitalism, less still its last superior period of training. Before, it is a recurrent phenomenon that the capitalist age marked since its primrdios in the Europe of end of the feudalismo and recm-moderna.' ' For it, ' ' capitalist history is, without a doubt, in the way of a decisive viragem, but the scene so is not undressed of precedents as it can seem of beginning. Long periods of crises, reorganization and reorganization, in summary, of discontinous change, had been much more typical of the history of the capitalist world-wide economy of what the brief moments of generalized expansion, throughout one defined track of development, as the occurrence in 1950 and 1960? s.

The theoretical challenge, ours to see, is much more, then, the understanding of the particularitities of the urbanization – and its relations with the citizen to each historical moment – in the molds of Arrighi in its analysis of the sistmicas alterations above sketched, that to become perplexed with the false relation urbanization sped up versus ' ' globalizao' ' economic, concept, these last, also, subject to serious speculations of consistency.
