GOMEZ LENDE, Sebastián. War of places in Argentina: analysis and Prospects of empirical examples. Rev. Univ. geogr. [online]. 2010, vol.19, n.1, pp. 139-177. ISSN 1852-4265.

Scarce empiric analysis object, the "war of places" question has been generally reduced or subsumed to their fiscal and urban aspects. Not only the cities, nevertheless, compete to each other, and the fiscal question is just an angle of a kaleidoscopic process whose foundations -local, regional, national or world- contain multiple possible situations, that is: the installation of an hegemonic activity and / or hegemonic firm; the territorial allotment of the social, economic and environmental consequences generated by the empire of those; the dispute among the companies for the same localization; and, finally, the conflict unchained between places and global firms, the first ones trying to expel them and the second seeking to give in them. Concept-key as alienation, merchandise's fetishism, spatial productivity and uprightness and horizontality, combined with empiric examples of the argentine case, will constitute indispensable theoretical and methodological inputs to overcome the traditional focus limitations and to reveal the new possibilities of studying about the war that places develop for and against capital.
