Abstract

In this rejoinder, I respond to the recent RRPE paper by Cobb, King, and Rodriguez (2009) concerning Mexican immigrant economic informality in the United States. Specifically I assess the discussion of economic informality of Mexican immigrants. I end with a call for further research into this phenomenon that employs millions in the U.S. informal economy.JEL classification: F22, J15, J61, O17
