This chapter elaborates on a more detailed argument for using particular kinds of class-based analysis in assessing the growth of supranational regions. It focuses on specific aspects of the spaces and places of class processes, developing three arguments that will be deployed in this discussion. These arguments pertain to fractions of capital in contexts of “actually existing globalization” (or neoliberal globalization), the roles of “extra-economic” institutions like states in geographically expansive class processes, and the formation of class alliances and “hegemonic blocs” in the production of transnational economic spaces. The chapter thus turns to a geographical-historical analysis of the GMS and its development, showing how a class-based approach can help explain some of the development phenomena, including their sociospatial unevenness.

Keywords:   class based, sociospatial unevenness, supranational regions, class processes, globalization, extra-economic institutions, class alliances, hegemonic blocs, transnational economic spaces, development phenomena
