Möglichkeiten und Grenzen der Schätzung der Schattenwirtschaft -- Eine kritische Auseinandersetzung mit den Schätzergebnissen der Bargeldmethode nach Schneider --
AbstractOfficial national accounts don't show the extent of the shadow economy. Therefore some estimation work is necessary. The paper classifies its methods. Since Schneider published several results for Germany, the paper centers on the estemating methods of his work. Looking in detail the currency method used by Schneider shows a lot of weaknesses, so the pre-sented volume of shadow economy has to be questioned. Therefore the large number of users of his estimation results have to be informed more intensely.
