Some theoretical problems of informal economy
The concept of informality started to materialize back in the early 1970s. Though it was a foreign notion for many, it still continues to develop nowadays. The debate over informal economy still persists, many believe that informality is linked to poorer countries and economies, and that it would terminate once they reached decent economic development. But, the evolution of informality theory over the last four decades showcased that it cannot be considered as a temporary phenomenon. Recent developments showed that informal economy has the potential to create jobs and produce revenues, therefore a primary challenge remains development of innovative development policies, and it finds the right support to integrate it in the formal economy. This paper engages in treatment of theoretical problems of informality, focusing on conceptual framework of informal economy.
