Not all businesses are affected by the downturn




“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?
