L'impresa mafiosa: i risultati economici della criminalità organizzata e il ruolo delle politiche pubbliche
[Mafia Business: economic performances of the organised crime and the role of the public policies]
The Tenth Annual Report published by "Sos Impresa", an Antiracket Association, notices that the organized crime is ah heavy "ballast" in the Southern Italian Economy: "Mafia Business makes annual revenues for 90 mln €, about the 6% ofItalian GDP". This work presents a reading of the organized crime under two perspectives: on one hand, the Becker's theory suggests an important role of the public security expending in the battle between the State and organized crime; on the other hand, the trust that Mafia tries toimpose in market relations, according Zamagni and Sen's contributes, makes Mafia an important social player in many economic backward countries.
