The Competition Between Local Government and Entrepreneurs in the View of Pierre Bourdieu’s Concept of Capitals

Przemysław Brzozowski


The paper presents the concept of capitals developed by Pierre Bourdieu in the light of the problems of competition between public entities, in particular local government units, and entrepreneurs outside the public utility sphere. The presented analysis sheds a new light on the multi-faceted competition between public and private entities in the field of economy, in particular on the cultural and social aspects of such competition. Pierre Bourdieu’s universal theory of the sociology of law may be successfully used in studying various aspects of the presented issues, which are often erroneously considered to be only economic factors in the common belief.
