Chapter 6: The shadow economy and entrepreneurship in Ukraine
Restricted access

This chapter gives an overview of the shadow economy in Ukraine. After a short historical introduction, the authors present and compare data from 2013 and 2015 (before and after the Revolution of Dignity) and argue that Ukrainian entrepreneurs often resort to corruption in order to save their businesses, retain their employees and gain competitive advantages. This ambivalence makes it extremely difficult to implement many anti-corruption measures in the country in a successful and lasting way.
