The result is that cash-in-hand economies are now composed of not only an underground sector (work akin to formal employment conducted for profit-motivated purposes), but also a hidden economy of favours more akin to mutual aid. The outcome is a call for a radical rethink of whether seeking its eradication through tougher regulations is always appropriate. Rereading both forms of cash-in-hand work as assets rather than obstacles to development, recommendations are made that harness their positive attributes and eradicate their more negative consequences."--Jacket." ;
