addition of hotels and commerce to Uptown Normal has turned in into a creative center 0 The hotels bring in business people who are followed by other capital 0 Isn t Florida merely describing Putnam s generational change It is easier to develop social capital in places that are very homogenous where everyone knows each other gemeinschaft o In opposition to this the younger generation wants to be lost amidst the hustle and bustle of gesselschaft Focusing on attracting factories companies to communities of place is a dated policy because jobs can be shipped over seas globalization o This is a

Village couldn t turn lake into protected area 0 The rules penalized the peasants who lived off the lake 0 Declaring the lake a protected area didn t eliminate the waste poop or runoff There are multiple conceptions of what the lake means 0 Peasants and elites have different conceptions Use value value of something based on usefulness for everyday life Exchange value how much you can get for something on the market 0 Old chair I use value is sitting on the chair it provides comfort every day I Exchange value lower you could sell the chair for a few dollars Brick of gold use value is tiny the exchange value is HUGE Pre capitalism things only had use value
