Author claims that an idea of labour market deregulation is based on assumptions easily found in every version of evolutionary theory – be it modernization or neomodernization theory, convergence theory, contemporary dependence theory or modern concepts of globalization – an, as such, essentially rejected. Empirical evidence concerning changes in institutional forms of labour are rather understood as an outcome of market invasion into spheres outside economy, i.e. into culture and structure of social relations. Side effects of these processes is increasing uncertainty, that makes rational decision making impossible. Further, author refers to the set of empirical studies showing that “marketization” of culture leads to passive forms of coping with reality and individual withdrawal from the variety of social interactions. Above all, such passive orientations are different from and idea of self made man, active entrepreneur and the like, that are considered as cultural basis of market economy.
