John Miller: The Ruin of Exchange
Space is the ultimate medium of exchange. Money is a token or object of exchange. Money may represent “in the last instance” the materials and goods that people want to exchange, but the accumulation of money eventually becomes the end of exchange. Even this must occur through space.
Time is money. Space is not money.
Space is the arena where social relations are produced and reproduced.
Technological advances leave the public sphere a ruin.

One thing equals so much of another – that is the transparency of the market.
Diffuseness is the residual promise of space.
