''Unionization and informal economy''
( 2012, Vol. 32 No.3 )
 
 
In this paper I investigate the relationship between unionization and the size of the informal economy. Using a cross-country panel data for 30 countries over the period from 1960 to 2009, I find a strong and robust negative correlation between unionization and the size of the informal economy.
 
 
Keywords: unionization, shadow economy, panel data.
