Abstract

The paper suggests that there are similar values ie. economic success and
a culture of consumerism embedded in both the legitimate and illegitimate
economies. It discusses possible micro and macro interventions to reduce the strains that arise from the blocked opportunities in attaining shared values. At a local level the paper discusses an action research model to develop social capital; in the broader context the paper discusses the redistributive potential of the circular economy to facilitate interventions which reduce harms.
