Book Description Manohar. Hardbound. Condition: As New. Contents: Preface. 1. Introduction. 2. Growth of slums: a framework. 3. Urban labour market: networks and physical segmentation. 4. Labour market mobility. 5. Living standards in Delhi slums. 6. Inter-household transfer of resources. 7. Women in the urban informal sector. 8. Policy review. 9. Conclusion. Bibliography. Index. "This volume analyses occupation, earning, and standard of living of the low income households from slum clusters in Delhi, and lays emphasis on strategies and efforts initiated by the slum dwellers to cope with uncertainities they face. The role of informal institutions or networks in accessing information pertaining to the urban labour market, and in experiencing an upward mobility, constitutes an important dimension of the analysis. Transfer of resources- monetary and/or non-monetary-across individuals/households, which can be either based on altruistic behaviour or motivated by the principle of exchange (or strategic exchange) takes the central position in the analysis. This helps derive the domain of public policy, which would not be in conflict with the existing institutions, and would emerge as supportive measures instead of appearing as direct interventions. Inter- spatial variations in economic activities performed in the city and their impact on the labour market in terms of physical segmentation, constitute the other major aspect that the study focuses on. Differences in occupational choices, incomes and consumption expenditure across sexes in the broad context of intra-household inequality are dealt with. Finally, 167 pp. Seller Inventory # 46396
