A groundbreaking research of ways illicit trade is altering the realm through reworking economies, reshaping politics, and shooting governments.In this attention-grabbing and complete exam of the bottom of globalization, Moises Naím illuminates the fight among traffickers and the hamstrung bureaucracies attempting to regulate them. From unlawful migrants to medicines to guns to laundered funds to counterfeit items, the black marketplace produces huge, immense gains which are reinvested to create new companies, permit terrorists, or even to take over governments. Naím unearths the internal workings of those amazingly effective overseas companies and exhibits why it's so demanding — and so essential to include them. Riveting and deeply educated, Illicit will swap the way you see the realm round you.

From the alternate Paperback edition.
