9780671018047: The Laundrymen: Inside the World's Third Largest Business

This text reveals how money laundering is a massive global industry, with an estimated $100-300 billion worth of illicit funds. It discloses who the participants are, how they make billions disappear and why it is not necessarily in the interests of bankers, lawyers and governments to stop them.

From Publishers Weekly:

Money made illegally presents a problem when it is in vast quantities of bills, but, as Robinson (Yamani) shows in this staggering expose, there is no dearth of bankers, lawyers, businesspeople, even government officials willing to help launder it. Among the contentions in this important book: worldwide, more money is spent on illicit drugs than on food; virtually every bill in circulation in the U.S. bears microscopic traces of cocaine; dozens of Third World countries would collapse economically if it were not for drug money. And those in charge of cleaning dirty money are sophisticated in creating paper trails that can take months or years to unravel; some of the machinations are so complex that reading about them here demands close attention. Among the specific cases Robinson discusses are those involving Italy's Banco Ambrosiano, tied to the Vatican Bank (IOR), and the BCCI scandal. The prognosis he presents is alarming: electronic banking will solve the major problems encountered when laundering money.

From Library Journal:

Robinson, a journalist and biographer (Bardot, LJ 5/1/95), offers insight into the elaborate schemes of money laundering, which has become a major industry and a driving force behind cash economies worldwide. For the first half of the book, Robinson presents numerous money-laundering scenarios in no particular order. His writing becomes more intriguing when, in the second half, he devotes whole chapters to specific schemes. Here we also learn about the futile attempts of governments to eradicate the corrupting influence of money laundering, which leads to all sorts of criminal activities. While Ann Woolner's Wash Gold: The Story Behind the Biggest Money Laundering Investigation in U.S. History (LJ 10/1/94) focuses on one high-profile scam, Robinson's informative book, though flawed, conveys the prevalence of this epidemic. It also contains an extensive bibliography. Recommended for criminal justice collections.?Bellinda Wise, Nassau Community Coll. Lib., Garden City,
