Greenfields, Ryder and Smith examine the potential of the Traveller Economy but also the potential of new innovations including mutualism and social enterprise preserving the core features of Gypsy and Traveller economic practices in a modern context that can reverse economic and social exclusion. The ‘Traveller economy’ has traditionally been at the heart of Gypsy and Traveller bonding social capital and self help networks based on self employment and entrepreneurialism and in-family training. However, it has been deemed by some commentators to be undergoing decline and stagnation yet has been neglected in terms of public debates.
