Fredric Jameson

Fredrick Jameson was born on the 14th of april 1934 he is known as an american literary critic and a marxist political theorist. Jameson was able to get a name for him self as he had a keen eye at analysing contemporary cultural trends, this is what helped him become a great theorist and also write a couple of books such as:

"Postmodernism, or, the Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism" and "The Political Unconscious"

Jameson described post-modernism as the "Spatialization of culture under the pressure of organised capitalism" I think that what Fredrick Jameson is trying to say is that the cultural new is all organised by the capitalist giants who stand to make more money from every cultural new this is because these companies all own the products which are becoming the cultural new.
