Overview

Corridor of Hope describes and analyzes diverse forms of informal economic activities in the Western and Eastern Hemisphere with an emphasis on grassroots initiatives, governmental control, and regulation. Abol Hassan Danesh unearths the intricacies of many of the activities loosely defined as informal economy. He transcends the spatial and temporal aspects of informal economic enterprise to universalize the application of theory and methodological pedagogy of informal economy. His thirty-one sections on the informal economy create a viable alternative to formal economic institution, while emphasizing the spontaneity and formlessness of the informal economy. An understanding of informal economy as presented by the author will lead to a reevaluation of the unquestioned acceptance of the formal economy.
