Abstract [en]

The argument here against entrepreneurship discourse is that it is used for transforming environmental and social problems into new market opportunities and to deregulate and cut back on support for people in precarious positions. We argue that these transformations destroy or promote unjust modes of entrepreneurship. Furthermore, entrepreneurship is an important weapon for capitalism to outsource and deny responsibility for the consequences of its actions. We show how this tendency operates through two stories about entrepreneurship. The first story is from a discourse concerning plastic pollution. In this story, entrepreneurship is presented as the solution to the problem concerning plastic pollution. The second story is about immigrants where exposed citizens are expected to find their entrepreneurial spirit and become self-sufficient within a hostile institutional system.
