An account which includes value relations shows that the phenomena said to characterise flexible accumulation are more contradictory and unstable, more varied, and more open to struggle than is supposed in work in which a new epoch is assumed. Internal regimes of regions, the relations between regions, and regulation of national space economies are discussed. The politics flowing from the flexible accumulation accounts oscillate between fatalism and utopianism. An approach based on value relations is able to provide a clearer basis for political struggle
