GLOSSARY

#1: The concept of ‘entreprecariat’ encapsulates the central paradox not only of the labour market, but perhaps of the entire post-industrial economy. Scrupulously cited by the author [Silvio Lorusso, Entreprecariat, 2018], an ample literature illustrates how the growing ‘entrepreneurisation’ of the workforce is none other than a hidden form of precarisation. In short, it is the response of economic agents to a regulatory framework that offers waged workers too much protection, something which is becoming less and less compatible with the effective functioning of capitalism. — Raffaele Alberto Ventura, The Spirit of Entreprecariat (2018)
