How big is the shadow economy?

The IEA is featured the Guardian

The IEA has featured in The Guardian, in an article concerning the expansion and increasingly casual nature of the UK's workforce. The piece looks at the extent to which more and more individuals are taking on informally paid work or failing to pay the correct amount of tax.

The 2014 IEA publication, The Shadow Economy, is mentioned in the article, stating that the UK's informal economy has continued to grow since 2007, although the size is less significant compared to other European countries.
