This chapter examines new forms of property emerging within neoliberal forms of economy. It explains how shopping malls provide an example of the privatization of public space and outlines how neoliberalism as a new form of political/economic governance has led to the creation of a society governed by information. It concludes that a wider conception of property is necessary to enable people to see property as more than a relationship between the owner of the land and the physical form of the property.
