Knowledge is an important factor in production and marketing, and cities are its focal point. Kampala's informal economy has in the past been dominated by people of low education, illiterate and semi- literate. This trend is rapidly changing as more educated people join this informal economy. The book explores the implications of the influx of educated people into the informal economy. The influx has led to innovation in production and collaborations. It continues to be a source of income and employment for a large segment of urban dwellers and continues to grow, in spite of the poor working conditions, lack of job security as well as social security. The discussion is relevant for urban planners and practitioners in developing countries that sport the largest informal economies.
