Politicians, the press and the general public throughout the world have become increasingly concerned about the black economy. At the same time academic economists have devoted a great deal of effort to understanding the causes and consequences of such activity, though much of this work has remained locked away in academic journals. In this book, the author attempts to present the results of that work in an interesting and accessible form, so that non-specialists can become better informed about the issues and the standard of public debate about the black economy can be raised. David J.Pyle has also written "The Economics of Crime and Law Enforcement", "The Political Economy of Tax Evasion" and with C.Greenway and S.Charles "Case Studies in the Economics of Social Issues".
