Corruption and Shadow Economy
Corruption and Shadow Economy can be broadly described as an illegitimate use of public or communal resource for a private gain. Corruption can be divided into different types like bribe, theft, isolated and systematic corruption, as well as bureaucratic corruption. The reasons for the occurrence of corruption can be found for example in ambiguous laws and regulations, which also include the monopolistic power of an individual or a company on information of the government practices. A high level of corruption can have tremendous impacts on a country wellbeing because corruption can detain a country’s global growth and poverty reduction. Several Indices like the Worldwide Governance Indicator, International Country Risk Guide, Corruption Perception Index or the Global Corruption Barometer are trying to measure the phenomenon of corruption. However, the reliability and the validity of the indices are debatable. Therefore, we are looking for scientific contributions which can add scientific value to the current knowledge that relates to corruption and shadow economy. Papers covering other related issues are also welcomed.
