The theoretical and empirical aspects of the research into Slovakia's illegal economy were based on a secondary analysis and two pieces of representative research. The main outcomes of the research inform us that the problems within the current Slovak economic system occur as a result of the processes of corruption, and that the shadow economy is one of the main barriers to the socio-economic development of Slovakia. To solve these problems it is necessary to implement more effective economic legislation that includes social measures and ethical principles.
