This chapter foregrounds three interrelated issues that run through the book: (1) the incommensurability between land and money, (2) the double life of development, and (3) structural power and value. It emphasizes that the incommensurability between land and money that led to protests over state compensation for land takings are neither a case of pure rejection of industrialization nor of simple irrational thought and institutional failure. To understand the impasse, one has to look at the local iterations of development.

Keywords:   development, incommensurability, regimes of self-making, value, values
