Abstract

This article discusses to what extent the legitimation of the economic actions of pioneering actors in the Swiss digital economy is oriented towards solutionism. In a first step, we propose an analytical framing of solutionism that focuses on the actor's perspective and its negotiations within the context of nation-state. In a second step, we ask about the empirical manifestations of solutionism in Switzerland based on semi-structured expert interviews. Using the example of two large companies in the mobility sector, we argue that a Swiss adaptation of solutionism can be identified, which differs according to whether the company is state-affiliated or an international firm. On the basis of the analysis of their corporate structure, entrepreneurial strategies and normative orientations, we show that the traditional stateaffiliated company represents a solutionism oriented towards the nationstate and that the transnational enterprise, on the other hand, is oriented towards a globally intended solutionism, which, however, relativizes its peculiar anti-regulationism in the context of the Swiss economy.
