Most people in Africa have little access to formal economies. Nevertheless, they are part of a money economy, and they buy and sell in different markets. What are these informal economies, and how they can be investigated academically? Guyer’s research focuses on the interface between formal and informal economies. For many years she has studied economic transformations, money management, and labor in West Africa.
