Abstract

This paper considers the influence of the burgeoning global ‘super-rich’ on contemporary socio-spatialisation processes in London in the light of a contemporary re-reading of Pahl’s classic volume, Whose City? It explores if a turn to ‘big data’ – in the form of commercial geodemographic classifications – can offer any additional insights to a sociological approach to the study of the ‘super-rich’ that extends the ‘spatialisation of class’ thesis further ‘up’ the class structure.
