Chapter 3 in Consumption, Informal Markets, and the Underground Economy, 2013, pp 36-75 from Palgrave Macmillan

Abstract: Abstract This chapter explores the informal consumption of 89 goods and services in South Texas across five informal groups: Health Care Informality, Household Work Substitution Informality, Home Project Informality, Household Service Informality, and Household Goods Informality. Each informal good or service is examined for consumption patterns by income and modeled to better understand the determinants of informal consumption.
