Decline of handicrafts and cottage industries

Other Names:
Lack of artisans and craftsmen

[Developing countries] Artisan and cottage production provides employment for about 50 to 75% of the number employed in large-scale manufacturing in the developing countries, depending on the degree of industrialization. Craftsmen working in or out of small shops, or at home, as owners or employees, are thus outnumbered by up to two to one by factory workers.
