Globalization at its Worst
Author Robert Svaiano worked undercover as an assistant to a Asian textile manufacturer to document how China is involved in the black market of Europe from high-end clothing to low-end junk.
He then collected evidence on the Camorra mob. A mob that technically owns Naples, Italy, especially its poor people.
The violence, the audacity, the subterfuge is as amazing as it is sickening. Toxic waste is dumped where it's feasible, not safe. Tags denoting where items are made mean nothing. Bribes can buy anything.
It's a book of horrors that surely involves far more places than Naples and makes any and all products we buy anywhere suspect.
An interesting read. Another condemnation of China. Also it looks at how the criminal element changes to meet new world challenges.
