Organized crime may have brought in more than 2 trillion in revenue last year, about twice all the military budgets in the world combined, a report issued Monday said.
The “State of the Future” report, published by the Millennium Project of the World Federation of the United Nations Associations, said organized crime entities generated income from money laundering, counterfeiting and piracy, and the trafficking of drugs, people and arms.
The report called organized crime one of the most pressing global issues that needs to be addressed in the next 10 years, along with global warming, terrorism, corruption and unemployment.
