Informality between Tyranny of Power and Silence of Society

january 2020


This study addresses the phenomenon of informality which represents accumulation of exceptional cases that continue and spread, leading to several negative effects. Among the most prominent reasons that allow empowerment of informality is the phenomenon of power or authority and its perceptions towards itself and others, as well as the state of indifference and lack of awareness that dominates a society. The study concludes that: authoritarian power + indifference and lack of awareness in society = accumulation and devotion of the phenomenon of informality.
