Shadow economy

The graphs are from the paper "Inclusive Growth, Institutions, and the Underground Economy" by Singh, Jain-Chandra, Mohommad (2012). The authors conclude: "[I]nstitutions are a more important determinant of the size of the underground economy than tax rates." Compare this argument with Pickhardt and Jordi Sarda's in a another new paper (2012)
Contrary to most other studies, we show that the latter [the Spanish underground economy] is not predominantly caused by tax pressure, but by labor market aspects, macroeconomic influences and criminal activities.

  1. EDWARD JONES FINANCE IS THE BEST PLACE TO GET A LOAN {Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com},
    God bless you sir, I will not stop telling the world about your kindness in my life, I am a single mum with kids to look after. My name is Emily Thomas and I am from Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, FL . A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about EDWARD JONES FINANCE, that they can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. I have been in a financial mess for the pass 7 months now, She advised I give it a try so I mailed him and explain all about my financial situation to him, he therefore took me through the loan process and gave me a loan of $390,000.00 at a very low interest rate of 2% and today I am a proud business owner and can now take good care of my kids, If you must contact any firm to get any amount of loan you need with a low interest rate of 2% and better repayment schedule, please contact EDWARD JONES FINANCE email:- {Jonesloanfinance@yahoo.com} OR Text +1(307) 217-5388
