Critical Commentary

In Lilly Irani's forthcoming book, she looks at how entrepreneurial citizenship draws people’s lives closer to the connective tissues of experiment, financial speculation, and accumulation. In response to critiques of top-down development, a move toward entrepreneurship enables rhetoric of "anyone can change everything." Within this ethos of entrepreneurship, Irani states that "change is the product of a particular kind of historical agency; change comes about thanks to singular or small groups of visionaries, whose ideas circulate on the media that is other people’s labor and infrastructure."
