    What would the addition of Illegal goods in a countries GDP do? It would increase the GDP so therefore increase Aggregate demand, which should mean reduction in unemployment and stuff like that..but it wouldn't really do that considering that are just counting something that was already there right?

    Illegal goods aren't counted in GDP calculations (black market economy), but it may lead to a rise in GDP if there is a positive multiplier effect through employment.
