Wait, don't leave me here, buried in the sand.

If everyone actually paid the taxes they owed we'd have enough money for free space travel.

Not only economic. Many things rely on illegal work.

True. I'm sure there is plenty of dirty money holding massive amounts businesses floating.

Major companies and 1% people's empires would definitely take a hit. But as we know, in this country, rich people don't have to follow laws.

Mind explaining?

Perhaps something in the lines of "the informal economy is the oil in the machine"?

Considering all the jobs that are linked to upholding laws, lawyers, police and whatnot, money collected through fines and everything. At least it would lead to a great ripple in the economy due to lost expected income, and a lot of jobs becoming suddenly redundant.
Of course in the long run it would lead to something a lot better, I'm just thinking about the sudden shock.
