Chapter Summary

Despite the recent financial crisis and zeal for austerity measures, the social enterprise model is continuously hailed as the local grassroots, organisational solution for both the empowerment and development of the poor. On the one hand it is a market-friendly model that answers to UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s call for the Big Society and on the other hand, a democratic answer to autonomy. This chapter tracks the growth 
of the social enterprise to the universal figure of the rational entrepreneur that 
largely stemmed from the global neoliberalisation of development. Through the lens of the global-is-local, the political social implications of Aboriginal management in domestic policy undoubtedly coexist with the rise of the social enterprise in Indigenous Australia.
