    Le blanchiment de capitaux provoque dans les économies des dégâts considérables. Il est néanmoins nécessaire d’éviter le manichéisme angélique qui consiste à dire que «la guerre, c’est pas beau». En effet, certains pays et certains peuples profitent de la manne financière issue du blanchiment. Cet article s’évertue donc à montrer plusieurs facettes de l’impact du blanchiment de capitaux sur les économies, qu’elles soient positives ou négatives. Il montre qu’une volonté évidente de lutter contre ce fléau doit être nuancée par des considérations sociales et politiques. Money laundering causes important damages in economy. Nevertheless, we should stop playing the innocent: some countries do take advantage from the financial sources that money laundering enables. This article aims at distinguishing the different impacts that money laundering has on economy, impact that could be either positive or negative. In spite of evident urge to fight against this curse, we discuss the fact that opinions should be more finely-shaded
