Abstract

This paper shows why some countries are trapped in an equilibrium with high unofficial economic activity and corruption while other countries are not. The potential for different outcomes follows directly from the complementary nature of unofficial economy and corruption activity.

Keywords: tax evasion, bureaucratic corruption, complementary activities, transition countries

JEL Classification: H26, K42
