The history of global capitalism is synonymous with the manipulation of time and space. Capital seeks ever greater efficiencies through the bending of time and space and the encouragement of human (and capital) mobilities. Drawing upon the example of the Philippines, this paper considers the multiple ways in which temporality provides a productive lens through which to explore various entanglements – social, political, economic – associated with global migration in an era described as neoliberal.
