The scale of risk is a direct function of the quality of social rela­ tions and processes. Instead of ‘progress’, it is the production of risks that dominates. The main axis of Beck’s (1992: 88) analysis is the opposition between scarcity, characteristic of class society, and insecurity, characteristic of risk society. Social class becomes dissolved in contemporary capitalism. Ac­ cording to Beck (1992: 36), with the production and division of labour spread across the globe, we share a common set of risks and thus we are all members of a risk society.
