The objective of this report is to put in perspective the economic impacts and non-economic impacts of the illicit economy. The illicit economy consists of any sort of underground trade of illegal products and services, as well as fraudulent and deceptive acts that are out of the legal limits of the legitimate economy (money laundering, scamming, etc). Although some acts in the illicit economy are relatively innocent, aggregately they can amount to have considerable consequences, other acts such as the arms trade can have absolutely astonishing and grave impacts on economics, politics, humans, and other issues
