Vernacular Values and Education

by Ivan Illich - 1979

The author distinguishes between two domains of social activity that tend to be confused in current economics under the heading of "informal sector." Within this informal sector, he discriminates between the area of shadow economics and the vernacular domain. He analyzes the narrow and different constraints within which the concepts derived from formal economics can be applied to the one and then to the other of these areas. This distinction of two opposite domains within the informal sector is applicable to disciplines other than economics.
