Title: The Shadow Economy: An International Survey Author: Friedrich Schneider, Dominik H. Enste
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.
