In this chapter the author revisits the city of Puebla in Mexico which he wrote about in the 1990s with Ann Varley, looking again at gentrification in the new context of Mexico having fully embraced neo-liberalism. He looks at representations of culture and especially ethnicity in the Paseo project which set out to establish a cultural, tourist and business in the historic centre and covering a number of ‘barrios’. It shows the Mexican state has underwritten real estate speculation, facilitating a bolder intervention to promote the interests of corporate capital in urban centres.

Keywords:   Puebla, New Mexico, neoliberalism, real estate speculation, capital, historic centre
