The objective of this paper is to investigate the interaction between shadow economy and economic growth, tax rate and poverty in Malaysia from 1973 to 2008. The econometrics methods of unit root tests, Johansen and Juselius Cointegration tests, granger causality based on the Vector Error Correction Model (VECM) framework, variance decomposition and generalized impulse response are applied in this study. The overall findings show that there is unidirectional impact of real gross domestic product (LRGDP), average tax rate (ATR) and poverty (GINI) on shadow economy (SHADOW) in the long run. In short-run, there is unidirectional granger causality running from shadow economy to average tax rate in Malaysia.
