Summary:"The informal economy did not disappear, nor did it decrease. Despite
early predictions of its eventual demise, it has not only grown
worldwide, but also emerged in new forms and unexpected places. This
book presents some in-depth cases regarding specific informal
economic activities in Brazil. Using an ethnographic approach, the
Author shows the social and economic processes that allow the
informal economy to be reproduced, revealing the complex and
heterogeneous relations between the formal and the informal parts of
economy. Throughout detailed descriptions of informality in action,
the book provides interesting starting-points to investigate the
renewed dilemmas of the informal economy and its linkages with
globalization processes"-- Provided by publisher.
