(Informal sector or Informal economy) This is defined by governments as the part of an economy that has no annual accounts, not taxed, not monitored by any form of government, not belonging to the chamber of commerce and not included in any Gross National Product GNP, unlike the formal economy. The GNP is defined as the market value of all products and services produced in one year by labor and property supplied by the residents of a country. In developing countries, some 70% of the potential working population are self-employed outside the formal economy and not on anyone's payroll and earn their living in the informal sector. They live and work in the informal sector not because it is their wish or choice, but because they have no chance to be hired by an employer from the formal sector except for a few hours or days, with no legal right to be hired again.
