The trade in counterfeit goods is not only growing more common across the globe - it is increasingly linked to international organized crime. But surprisingly little is known about the financial mechanisms that lie behind this trade. Fake Goods, Real Money changes the narrative by providing the first account of the counterfeiting business’s financial management. Written by experts in a wide range of fields, it examines the financial and business structures that bolster the worldwide trade in illicit counterfeit products. It also considers how the internet and e-commerce present financial opportunities for counterfeiters while exploring how these processes intersect with the counterfeit trade. Drawing on interviews with active criminal entrepreneurs across the world, the authors explore organized crime and criminal markets, digital technologies and their legal and sociological implications, and the cultural values and practices underlying it all.
