Informal entrepreneurs in central America: A labor of love or survival?

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Discussion of the informal sector is virtually absent in mainstream management and international business curricula and texts. Since contemporary management and international business thought is monopolized by outlets written in English and primarily by authors in the triad (i.e., developed Europe, North America and developed Asia), where the informal economy is relatively small, the informal economy is mostly overlooked and perhaps seen as a curiosity rather than an important employer and engine of economic growth (Pisani and Patrick 2002).
