Vol. 15, Nos. 3-4 (1988)
This double issue focuses on the changing structure of the late 20th-century world economy and the accommodation of peoples in the East and the West to the collapse of post-World War II modes of survival and the criminal underside of this new world. The contributors question whether the informal economy is an artifact of underdevelopment, and hence will diminish with economic growth; whether it is inevitable in socialist economies, or reflects past distortions and inequalities, requiring structural change; and whether it contributes to and influences social change.
