Farewell to the self-employed: deconstructing a socioeconomic and legal solipsism
This work offers a firm theoretical foundation for discussing the self-employed, their role over time, and the formulation of policy towards them. It calls into question the theoretical coherence of the traditional approaches and views the current debate over the recent alleged growth in self-employment in the context of the casualization and externalization of employment relationships--such as part-time, temporary, home, leased, and subcontracted labor. And it shows the chief source of data on the self-employed, collected by the Bureau of the Census, to be seriously flawed and the generally accepted notion of the self-employed to be grossly overinclusive.
