With all the discussions/comments about people trying to lower their profile in the system by "going Galt", etc. I'd be interested in knowing if there are there any reliable/believable estimates of numbers of people who work in the "underground" economy (i.e., work and are paid "under the table"), and secondly, should one expect these numbers to be a significant fraction of the NILF numbers? |
While these "underground" jobs do not directly contribute to tax receipts, etc., I would expect that they do contribute to overall economic activity.
