The gig economy.
An increasing number of people across Latin America are earning a living in the gig economy. This raises questions about the implications for labour markets in the region, and well as broader socio-economic impacts.
- The attractiveness of the gig economy will depend substantially on the strength of local currencies.
- Governments may choose not to be pro-active in collecting taxes from gig-economy workers.
- A rise in the gig economy will divert skilled workers away from local labour markets, though it could increase their purchasing power.
