Uncovering how cash-in-hand economies are composed of not only the underground sector (work akin to formal employment conducted for profit-motivated purposes), but also a hidden economy of favours more akin to mutual aid, this book displays the need to transcend conventional market-oriented readings of cash-in-hand work and radically rethink whether seeking its eradication through tougher regulations is always appropriate. It argues for a variegated policy approach that recognizes these two distinct forms of cash-in-hand work and which tailors policy accordingly. Advanced undergraduates and postgraduates studying economy sociology, sociology of work and labour economics; Advanced undergraduates and postgraduates in departments of social policy, human geography and planning Policy makers and researchers in UK government departments such as the Inland Revenue, Department of Work and Pensions, Office of the Deputy Prime Minister; Policy makers and researchers for international bodies such as the European Union, International Labour Office, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development
