Post-capitalist imaginaries: The case of workers' collectives in Greece

Abstract
This paper focuses on the case of two workers' collectives in Athens, Greece, and reflects on the transformative potential of entrepreneurial creation.  I argue that these social  and  economic  experiments are collective and essentially political. Thus breaking  from the individualism that characterizes entrepreneurial discourse, this paper looks at the collective dimension of entrepreneurial activity and by reflecting on the collective capacities and transformative potential of these social initiatives, in terms of creating shared forms of sociality and bringing forward new ways of living and collective co-existence, it points to the inherently political character of entrepreneurship.
