“Virtually
 
all
 
policies
 
affect
 
the
 
informal
 
Economy.
 
In
 
the
 
past,
 
interested
 
policy
 
makers
 
have
 
advocated
 
some
 
mix
 
of 
 
the
 
following
 
policies
 
for
 
those
 
who
 
work
 
in
 
the
 
informal
 
economy:
 
social 
 
 policies
 
to
 
improve
 
their
 
health
 
and
 
education;
 
infrastructure
 
and 
 
services
 
to
 
improve
 
their
 
housing
 
and
 
living
 
environment;
 
microfinance
 
and
 
enterprise
 
development 
 
services
 
to
 
increase
 
the
 
productivity
 
of 
 
their
 
enterprises;
 
bureaucratic
 
and 
 
legal 
 
changes
 
to
 
reduce
 
the
 
barriers—and
 
related
 
transaction
 
costs—to
 
registering
 
their
 
enterprises;
 
and,
 
more
 
recently,
 
 property 
 
rights
 
to
 
give
 
them
 
the
 
ability
 
to
 
transform
 
their
 
assets
 
into
 
liquid
 
capital.
 
Too
 
few
 
policy
 
makers
 
have
 
considered
 
how
 
other
 
areas
 
of 
 
policies—economic
 
policies,
 
labour
 
legislation,
 
and
 
social
 
protection
 
schemes—affect
 
the
 
informal
 
economy.
 
(…)
 
Until
 
recently,
 
there
 
was
 
a
 
widespread
 
assumption
 
that
 
mainstream
 
economic
 
policies
 
do
 
not
 
and
 
cannot
 
reach
 
the
 
informal
 
economy.
 
(…)
 
Clearly,
 
a
 
reappraisal
 
of 
 
the
 
impact
 
of 
 
existing
 
economic
 
policies
 
and
 
the
 
need
 
for
 
supportive
 
economic
 
policies
 
is
 
called
 
for.
 
This
 
is
 
because
 
economic
 
policies
 
impact
 
the
 
process
 
of 
 
redistribution
 
between
 
the
 
formal
 
and
 
informal
 
economy.
 
Policy
 
analysis
 
needs
 
to
 
determine
 
whether
 
the
 
informal
 
economy
 
shares
 
in
 
benefits
 
from
 
government
 
expenditure
 
and
 
procurement
 
policies.”

Policy
 
Response
