Abstract

This essay began as a paper for a day of critical reflection, drawing on three sources - promotional material for 'Social Enterprise Day' in November 2006, the 'Social Enterprise Awards' in the same month, and ministerial statements - to illustrate some observations about a dominant view of social enterprise. The purpose of making this essay public in 2011is not simply to record a worry about the direction of an aspect of social policy in the United Kingdom during the second and third terms of the New Labour government (from 2001 onwards), but also to draw attention to the continuing relevance of the worry.
