In this book, the various patterns of informal economies and the causes of their growth in Romania are explored from quantitative and qualitative research: the difficult social transformation; informal household consumption and labor, their incomes, developments and strategies; and the impact of informalization in different branches related to the Romanian economy as a whole. Comparisons with other Eastern European countries are included, and methodological procedure is explained.
