What is the black market?

Is it an actually place where illegal deals go down, is it some secret internet thing. Or is it just refering to illegal deals but not a actual place?

  • Illegal items (even organs) are sold at a high crime area or the 'underworld' It can be through internet purchases but its usually at a thug area.

  • I usually think of the black market as any where that things are sold illegally. The things being sold don't have to be illegal. But the way they are sold is illegal. For example stolen items. The items themselves are legal, but they are stolen. It basically just mean bypassing the normal legal route of buying things.

    It might also refer to things like bootlegged or pirated copies of items. It could be services also, not just items.

    • Secret internet thing

    • It's the illegal economy. All exchanges that are illegal. Even buying cigarettes which are legal, but through a source that avoids the taxes would classified as "black market".

  • The term "market" can refer to online, a physical location, a subset of the economy ("the phone market"), or the general buying or selling of goods.

    The term "black market" is used for the illegal variant of any of those things.
