Not all businesses are affected by the downturn

 

From http://business.smh.com.au/business/mafia-untouched-by-crisis-20081112-5msk.html

 

“The Italian mafia, the country’s organised crime network and biggest enterprise, has not been affected by the global economic crisis, a report by an Italian business association said.”

So how come legitimate businesses are so affected?

 

“The mafia has a turnover of 130 billion euros ($248.71 billion) – surpassing any other Italian enterprise in 2008 – and a profit approaching 70 billion euros ($133.92 billion),”

Who says crime doesn’t pay?
