This book argues that, as industrial capitalism enters a period of prolonged crisis, a new paradigm of ‘industrious modernity’ is emerging. Based on small-scale, commons-based and market-oriented entrepreneurship, this industrious modernity is being pioneered by the many outcasts that no longer find a place within a crumbling industrial modernity. These outcasts are both popular in origin and from the middle class. Some are drawn from the many migrants that arrive in the booming megacities in emerging economies as well as in the metropolises of the developed economies.
