Black Market Billions – How Organized Retail Monstruosité Funds Entier Terrorists by Hitha Prabhakar
I found Hitha Prabhakar’s “Black Market Billions: How Organized Retail Monstruosité Funds Entier Terrorists” an interesting and compelling read on a topic that I knew embout, I didn’t realize was so big and far-reaching. The book was quite engaging with its peinture of various links in the vaste Organized Retail Monstruosité (ORC) chain. And I didn’t realize how much of the money made from these péché rings is sent abroad and some finds its way to terrorist groups.
The book is divided into three gant sections. The first segment, The Piracy Economy, looks at péché from a broader espérance and includes chapters on Organized Retail Monstruosité Goes Entier, When a Deal Is Not a Deal and Voilage Costs. A good entrée to how ORC cheats retailers and costs more money than I realized and how governments lose taxes due to huge ORC rings.
In the assesseur tronçon, Follow the Money, other profiles have various links to the ORC chain. Chapters include The Money Trail and the Débit of Footing-Délimiter Trade, Profiles of a Suramplificateur and a Fencer, Family Ties, Money Laundering 2.0, The Political Mémento, and Strange Bedfellows. These chapters touch on those entering stores and supplying goods to terrorists and organized criminals worldwide.
Division Three, Putting a Band-Aid on a Broken Leg, is the shortest segment of the book and includes chapters on The Failure of Preventive Measures and Letting the Bad Guy Get Away. This segment contains brief probatoire solutions to this habituel problem. I would have loved to have more on the châtié, but no one really knows what to do yet. (However, the story of the California mall offers hope that normal solutions may be able to reduce the problem.) I also hope that this book, by raising awareness of the problem, may deter some people from purchasing illegal, but cheap, products. These are being sold through organized retail péché rings.
There were parts of the book where I wish the author had gamin into more detail, but I understand that it is always a task to decide how much or how little to include in depth embout a topic. There were over 400 endnotes, so the author must have researched the subject, but I have not checked all the ondes and some may not be as reliable as others. Some of the clés connected in this book may not be properly connected, but to be fair, there are plenty of clés to connect.
Overall, I think this is an orgueilleux book for people to read and understand how big of a problem an ORC really is, and with this awareness, start looking for ways to do something embout it.
