street economy


Street vendors sold everything from fresh food to stereos and TV sets in thousands of street markets spread throughout different cities. Several times supported by officials and politicians who have used them as scapegoats for many urban problems but also as political allies, street vending grew markedly as a form of "self-employment" that helped feed many families and provide essential services during the difficult economical period of the crisis. Street Economy Archive contains documents from various cities and continents, from Venice to Tirana, Mexico City to Bangkok, showing everyday strategies of survival.
