Pub­lisher: Cam­bridge Univer­sity Press, 2013 Pages: 223

This vol­ume dis­cusses the bound­aries be­tween the of­fi­cial and un­of­fi­cial econ­omy which are fuzzy and re­search schol­ars en­gage in lively de­bates about the va­lid­ity of meth­ods to es­ti­mate the size of the shadow econ­omy. Here is an ex­cel­lent the­o­ret­i­cal frame to in­ves­ti­gate the shadow econ­omy from a so­cio-eco­nomic per­spec­tive and highly rel­e­vant em­pir­i­cal data which al­lows the reader to draw prac­ti­cal con­clu­sions for po­lit­i­cal in­ter­ven­tions to com­bat grow­ing eco­nomic crime. The au­thors in­ge­niously mea­sure the non-mea­sur­able and re­move the shad­ows from western economies. This ex­tremely valu­able con­tri­bu­tion pro­vides a rig­or­ous treat­ment of the sub­ject and will be­come the stan­dard ref­er­ence book of the shadow econ­omy. A great re­search and a great book.
