La mondialisation par le bas et ses formes de régulation politique
Abstract. These flux which imply transactions which are non institutionalized, informal, sometimes ?semi-legal? or ?illegal?, are generated by migrants, merchants and small entrepreneurs who bring goods, new or second hand, original or pirated, to consumers that otherwise wouldn?t have access to the world?s wealth. What is this Economic Globalization from below? How do street vendors organize themselves in order to sell these products in forbidden places? We will try to answer these questions with field materials (deep interviews and surveys) from Mexico City?s Historical Center.
