    The aim of this paper is to propose a model of money laundering and an economic analysis model of money laundering by usury. The first one is an evolution of a model already present in the literature and the difference is in the way to evaluate the advantage for a criminal to reinvest the laundered money in the illegal market. In fact laundering dirty money is expensive. The second model shows what happens when the money laundering is made using the usury credit. The most interesting result of this analysis is that usurious rate can be cheaper than legal rate, because the aim of the usury can be to launder dirty money.
