The Misfit Economy

Alexa Clay and Kyra Maya Phillips met one day over tea in Bloomsbury to hatch a plan to shape a new economy. Somewhere along the way a new vision for innovation was born. Bottoms-up, informal, and black market economies may have something to teach the traditional economy about ingenuity, entrepreneurialism and human resilience. Alexa and Kyra are on the road, uncovering the hidden dimensions of underground and black market economics. Much to their delight, Simon & Schuster decided to come along for the ride and a book will be forthcoming.
