    Accidental ventures - A materialist reading of opportunity and entrepreneurial potential2008In: Scandinavian Journal of Management, ISSN 0956-5221, E-ISSN 1873-3387, Vol. 24, no 2, p. 94-102Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Arguably, one of the unspoken philosophical bases of entrepreneurship studies is an unreflected metaphysical idealism, which can be seen in the way in which concepts such as "entrepreneurial potential" have been used in the field. Here, we critique this idealism by presenting a materialist reading of three unlikely entrepreneurial successes, and discuss how theorizing these could be improved by working with notions of arbitrariness, accidents, and "dumb luck". The paper thus forms a philosophical critique of the field, and presents a recontextualization of how entrepreneurial, potential, opportunity discovery, and success can be understood.

    Electronic Potlatch: A study concerning new technologies and primitive economic behaviors2001Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other scientific)
    Abstract [en]

    Economy - the very idea. In an age where the market economy seems to have achieved a total and omnipresent hegemony, there would seem to be little to discuss anymore. Going against this, the book argues for a sensitivity to other forms of economies,and the hybrids existing in our postindustrial society.Concentrating specifically on gift economies, and presenting a very vibrant and alive version of such an economy existing today, the book tries to widen the perspective of what economy is, and at the same time present a case for a 'new primitivism' in the study of such.

    Based on an ethnographic study of 'warez' and the community around these, the book analyzes competitive giving and what happens in networked economies where normal economic restrictions no longer apply. In this sense it is a study of economy in a general sense, although thoroughly studied in a very particular case.

    Pop (culture) goes the organization: On highbrow, lowbrow and hybrids in studying popular culture within organization studies2008In: Organization, ISSN 1350-5084, E-ISSN 1461-7323, Vol. 15, no 5, p. 765-783Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Do we need to study popular culture within organization studies, and exactly what is it we do if we choose to do so? Is it nothing more than organizational scholars co-opting yet another discipline, or is there an independent contribution to be made? I will in this text argue that in order to develop, organization studies must find its own identity in relation to cultural studies, and that the search for this must by necessity include the study of hybrid cultural forms. Such forms, which are neither highbrow nor properly lowbrow, challenge common assumptions about what 'popular' in fact means in the field, and points towards the need for a more complex theory of how images of management and organization are consumed, disseminated and re-created from the world of popular culture into the world of the contemporary organization and back again.

    The politics of contraband - The honor economies of the warez scene2004In: The Journal of Socio-Economics, ISSN 1053-5357, E-ISSN 1879-1239, Vol. 33, no 3, p. 359-374Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Lodged within the Internet's increasingly commercialized webs there exists a thriving subculture that has developed an economy all its own. Specifically, a modern gift economy, a consistent and internally rational structure of actively anti-economic behavior that presents an interesting juxtaposition to our contemporary notions of economy. Based on an extended ethnography, this subculture is analyzed as a society ordered by agonistic play and gift-giving as economy. The contribution can best be described as adding ethnographic data from the post-industrial phase in Western economic development to the discussion of gift economies, a discourse that has usually dealt only with archaic communities.

    'Znakomstva I Svyazi' - (Acquaintances and connections) - Blat, the Soviet Union, and mundane entrepreneurship2004In: Entrepreneurship and Regional Development, ISSN 0898-5626, E-ISSN 1464-5114, Vol. 16, no 3, p. 235-250Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The discussion regarding entrepreneurship and society has often presupposed that this society by necessity will be one that embraces the market economy as a guiding principle. This paper questions this assumption by discussing a command economy, namely the Soviet Union, as a fundamentally entrepreneurial society. By introducing the case of the blat, 'Russia's economy of favours', the paper illustrates how mundane individual economies can be a part of entrepreneurship, and how flexible opportunity networks can support the rigidity of a command economy. Continuing from this, the exclusion of such irregular economies is discussed from an ideological rather than an analytic standpoint. The paper further presents some inferences that can be drawn from the case of the blat and which problematizes common assumptions in entrepreneurship studies.

    Makin' it, by keeping it real - Street talk, rap music, and the forgotten entrepreneurship from the 'hood2007In: Group & Organization Management, ISSN 1059-6011, E-ISSN 1552-3993, Vol. 32, no 1, p. 50-78Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article deals with rap music and with two distinct discourses in which rap artists habitually engage. It also deals with the way that one, in these, can find a dialectic between the special and the mundane, between succeeding-makin' it-and remaining loyal to the values of your community or culture-keeping it real. Furthermore, it deals with how the rap star Shawn Jay-Z Carter handles this dialectic, positing entrepreneurship as both a politics and an ethic, and how we, by reading his lyrics, are led to some forgotten localities in academic research-the disenfranchised, urban, marginalized, entrepreneurial 'hood..
