Download Mafia AG: Camorra, Cosa Nostra und 'Ndrangheta erobern by Giovanni Tizian PDF

By Giovanni Tizian

Gigantische one hundred forty Milliarden Euro Umsatz jährlich - die "Mafia AG" ist die größte Wirtschaftskraft Italiens. Und doch hält sich hartnäckig das Vorurteil, Camorra & Co. sei allein ein challenge des strukturschwachen Südens. Im Gegenteil: Nur im reichen Norden gibt es genügend zahlungskräftige Kunden für Drogengeschäfte; nur dort, im ökonomischen Herzen des Landes, können Gelder im großen Stil "gewaschen" werden; und nur im wirtschaftsgeprägten Norditalien lassen sich die enormen Gewinne in eine vielfältige Wirtschaftslandschaft reinvestieren.

Giovanni Tizian enthüllt detailliert, wie sich das Vordringen der Clans in die prosperierenden Regionen abspielt und wie heimisch die Bosse sich zwischen Mailand, Florenz und Venedig heute schon fühlen. Eindrucksvoll widerlegt er den Mythos vom "sauberen Norden" und "kriminellen Süden". Er deckt Strategien und Methoden auf, erläutert die lukrativsten Branchen und analysiert beispielhaft, wie die Paten vorgehen. Gesundheitswesen? Schutzgelderpressung? Hoch- und Tiefbau? So vielfältig der "Konzern" ist, so profitabel ist er. Und dabei stets bereit, über Leichen zu gehen.
