"This study of the large, dangerous counterfeit clothing market in Buenos Aires known as La Salada addresses questions about informal and/or black markets, revealing how market exchanges function outside of the law, how the agreements for the market are made, and how social norms are conducted within the market itself and concluding that aspirations for future success shape the present actions and behavior of workers there"-- Provided by publisher
