"Bouncing Back" to Poverty: Exploring the Meaning of Resilience in a Time of Capitalist Crisis

P. 205-208.

Although urban development under capitalism has historically
demonstrated an extraordinary resilience to economic crises and
instabilities, that capacity has usually occurred at disproportionate cost to
marginalized communities. Hence, we need to make sure we are not
mistaking places that benefit from capitalism as resilient geographies (Lang,
2015). Indeed, many of the hardiest communities appear to be comprised of a
“cartel of politicians and financial executives, aided by think tanks and
philanthropic organizations” (Slater, 2014).
