As findings money laundering the infiltration and sometimes saturation of dirty money into legitimate financial sectors and national accounts can threaten economic and political stability. It's impact is felt on financial behavior and macro-economic performance in a variety of ways including policy mistakes due to measurement errors in Sri Lanka national account statistics, volatility in exchange and interest rates due to unanticipated cross border transfers of funds the threat of monetary instability due to unsound asset structures, effects on tax collection and public expenditure allocation due to misreporting of income, misallocation of resources due to distortions in asset and commodity prices; and contamination effects on legal transactions due to the perceived possibility of being associated with crime.
