Something I have noticed in the coverage of Jim Green's passing is mention of his role as "developer," a word that, until recently, brought to mind market housing and capital accumulation. In this video we hear Jim Green refer to himself as a "community developer," a believer in what others have referred to as "social profit."

One of the longstanding narratives that have come to define this city is that it is pro-development. Nice to see that the word development has expanded to include more than the evictions and exclusions that we have come to associate with its usage.
