The transformations of the processes of valorisation that have innervated the passage from Fordist-Taylorist to bio-cognitive capitalism have also highlighted the transformations of the welfare system. In this essay, we intend to analyse the process according to which welfare institutions have been transformed into productive factors, capable of influencing the mechanism of capitalist valorisation. Starting from what emerged in the field survey conducted in three pilot countries (Italy, Holland, Croatia) from the Horizon 2020 research "Pie News", we can observe that there are attempts to bottom-up experiments within the social body, thanks to which it is possible to resist the growing uncertainty and economic insecurity generated by the new models of neo-liberal governance (Butler, 2015, Leroy, 2015). From this point of view, the theme of the centrality of social reproduction and care expropriated by contemporary production paradigms is addressed. Far from being a simple cost, the reproduction and enhancement of the living being is becoming, thanks also to the development of private forms of health and social insurance, more and more directly or indirectly productive. In this context, the final paragraph is dedicated to the presentation of the Commonfare proposal (Welfare of the Common), originating from the analysis of good welfare practices from below.

Abstract

The transformations of the processes of valorisation that have innervated the passage from Fordist-Taylorist to bio-cognitive capitalism have also highlighted the transformations of the welfare system. In this essay, we intend to analyse the process according to which welfare institutions have been transformed into productive factors, capable of influencing the mechanism of capitalist valorisation. Starting from what emerged in the field survey conducted in three pilot countries (Italy, Holland, Croatia) from the Horizon 2020 research "Pie News", we can observe that there are attempts to bottom-up experiments within the social body, thanks to which it is possible to resist the growing uncertainty and economic insecurity generated by the new models of neo-liberal governance (Butler, 2015, Leroy, 2015). From this point of view, the theme of the centrality of social reproduction and care expropriated by contemporary production paradigms is addressed. Far from being a simple cost, the reproduction and enhancement of the living being is becoming, thanks also to the development of private forms of health and social insurance, more and more directly or indirectly productive. In this context, the final paragraph is dedicated to the presentation of the Commonfare proposal (Welfare of the Common), originating from the analysis of good welfare practices from below.
