McMafia: Seriously Organised Crime

Front Cover
Penguin Random House, Dec 14, 2017 - Organized crime - 448 pages
With the collapse of the Soviet Union, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the deregulation of international financial markets in 1989, governments and entrepreneurs alike became intoxicated by forecasts of limitless expansion into newly open markets. No one would foresee that the greatest success story to arise from these events would be the globalisation of organised crime. Current estimates suggest that illegal trade accounts for nearly one-fifth of global GDP. McMafia is a fearless, encompassing, wholly authoritative investigation of the now proven ability of organised crime worldwide to find and service markets driven by a seemingly insatiable demand for illegal wares.
