Conclusion: Entrepreneurship — Unpicking the Work of Attribution

  • Peter Armstrong


Entrepreneurialism is like any other policy. Along with the administrative labour of trying to make it work there is the intellectual labour of trying to make it appear to work. Of this there has lately been a great deal, largely because the post 1980s New Right capture of government policy in the USA and UK has created both the market and the funding for representations of reality which attribute economic success to entrepreneurship. Even describing the process in such terms begins the task of opening up those attributions to critical examination.
