(ANSA) – Catanzaro, July 5 – The 'Ndrangheta criminal
organization, which has its roots in the region of Calabria,
each year shaves off some 3.5% of local gross domestic product,
equivalent to 1.2 billion euros, according to a new book.
In fact, one-third of Calabrian businessmen reportedly said
that their company revenues would be higher had their business
activities been carried out in safer areas, according to
'L'Impero della 'Ndrangheta' (Empire of the 'Ndrangheta).
Written by MP Dorina Bianchi and economist Raffaele Rio,
the study was based on data and interviews carried out
exclusively for the two researchers by the Demoskopika agency.
The findings of the book were announced Friday in
Catanzaro, Calabria.
The book will be officially unveiled on July 15 in the
presence of anti-mafia magistrate and Senate Speaker Pietro
Grasso and Interior Minister Angelino Alfano.
The 'Ndrangheta is considered Italy's most powerful mafia
due to its hold on the European cocaine trade.
