"It should now be obvious that these dispositions also provide an affective ground state for the same skills demanded by a neoliberal political economy. Workers are expected to undertake repetitive tasks, often at short notice, and with the intention of maximizing their productivity to ‘win’ — that is, be the most efficient — within a competitive setting"

Also the section on the generational change in "play" is interesting as well, where people may engage in play not for internally decided reasons, but for external material or status gains because of how we have less material stability
