Notwithstanding the international community focused its attention on money laundering quite a long time ago, still there is very little scientific knowledge on the effectiveness and efficiency of countermeasures adopted to contrast such a phenomenon. This articles aims to contribute to the debate on the topic by discussing the reasons for this lack of knowledge and criti-cally reviewing traditional and new approaches to assess anti-money laundering efforts. Amongst the latter, a recent and promising strand of economic literature is discussed.
