Entreprecariat – Siamo tutti imprenditori. Nessuno è al sicuro.
Entrepreneur or precarious? These are the terms of a cognitive dissonance in which everything seems like a mammoth startup. Silvio Lorusso guides us to discover “entrepreneurship”, a universe made of tools for productivity, motivational posters and self-help techniques to be optimistic. Not only that: a mix of entrepreneurial ideology and widespread precariousness is what regulates social media, online markets for self-employment and crowdfunding platforms. The result? A life in permanent beta, with sometimes tragic implications.
Entreprecariat speaks of entrepreneurship, but it is not a self-help manual to “do it”. Nor is it the usual hagiography of visionaries like Steve Jobs or self-made man like Flavio Briatore. On the contrary, the book describes the reality that surrounds the so-called “entrepreneurs of themselves”: students, freelancers, unemployed pushed or forced to develop an entrepreneurial mentality in order not to succumb to the growing precariousness that involves the professional, economic as well as existential sphere . Welcome to entrepreneurship, where the entrepreneurial spirit, rather than a blessing, represents a condemnation.
