Edgardo Buscaglia continues his pressing investigation into organized crime and its links to political corruption, this time on an international scale. He focuses on the evolution and keys to money laundering, which sustains the proprietary and financial networks of criminal groups around the planet: including the Sinaloa Cartel, the Italian-American mafia, the Yakuza, the Triads and other Asian groups. This book ventures down paths unexplored by international cooperation and proposes concrete mechanisms for fighting organized crime that go beyond the lack of political determination by corrupt regimes under the thumb of criminal networks.
