Re-Placing Informal Employment challenges many of the popular myths surrounding informal economic activities, and offers a radical reassesment of their extent, growth, location and nature.
The book uses case studies from the UK, France, Italy, the Netherlands, the US and Canada to challenge:
* the popular belief that informal employment is growing throughout the advanced economies
* the myth that this work is undertaken mostly by marginalized groups
* the dominant view that we should replace informal with formal employment through enforcement of regulations.
Examining policy options and their consequences, the authors show that conventional approaches only increase inequalities and that a radical alternative solution is essential.
