This comprehensive examination looks into Australias cash economy and the implications which recent changes to tax policy are likely to have on its size. The cash economy is without question known by the public to exist, but its size and consequences are generally poorly understood. The book takes a closer look at what motivates individuals and businesses to participate in these illicit activities and proposes a list of possible economic and social consequences which may arise from active participation.Including the first known time series estimate of the size of the cash economy in Australia, this revealing work will form the foundations of much further research.Author Biography: Christopher Bajada, Dr, School of Finance & Economics, University of Technology, Sydney, Australia
