The city of Jakarta is an old trade centre that has developed into a thriving global city. In many ways development has been successful and, perhaps, Jakarta will become a prime centre in the twenty-first Asian Century. The insertion of Jakarta into the global flows of the economic world order strengthens linkages between the various levels (global, regional, national, local) and contribute to a unique mix of stakeholders and relations, also called ‘global cityness’. With the insertion into economic relations deepens inequality grows. The question is what motivates production of inequality in Jakarta? This paper explores how various traditional practices in policy and planning interact with social structures and contribute to inequality. Inequality has developed over the centuries and heterogeneous paths. Perhaps the least studied components having an impact on inequality are the environmental disasters. Another, newer aspect is the magnitude of the urban problems associated uneven global city development. The lack of local surveys and statistical information impede on a detailed study but current and general issues are presented. A ‘glocal window’ and assemblage approach is applied in this paper. It draws on development, globalization and city development research to explore the co-production of inequality. Urban modernization, governance practices, planning and policy, environmental disasters have an impact on access to resources in Jakarta. They are part of the assemblage that highlights urban inequality and the fragile character of the global city. Finally, through the ‘glocal window’ a brutal reality is seen.
