Organised crime syndicates in Italy, the mafia, are now the “number one bank” in the country.
This is claimed by a report by anti-crime group SOS Impresa on Tuesday.
According to its report, SOS Impresa estimates that the mafia lends money to over 200,000 businesses every year, earning it an annual turnover of around 140 billion euros ($179 billion).
The mafia’s illicit operations, SOS Impresa says, could be equivalent to nearly 7 percent of the country’s total national output, thus making it “the largest economic agent in the country”.

It is a bad hidden secret that the mafia boss of Italy just recently resigned as Prime Minister.
During his 11 years in power, Silvio Berlusconi transferred Italy into the perfect gangster state. The PM created a great show, and the smokescreen was almost perfect. There was almost no scandals in Rome, that had no links to the Berlusconi government.
The mafia boss controls the media in Italy, in fact all major TV-stations.
The administrators of yellow journalism will always find the payable “sources”.
There is hardly a police officer, lawyer or judge who have seen or heard anything. At least nothing that can intimidate or link Berlusconi to any thing unlawful.
Even the Pope was not able to remove the notorious Roman Catholic womanizer, who used his credit card to seduce Italian teenagers.

But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
The legacy of Berlusconi is two trillion USD in Italian public debt. Very conveniently, a lot of money has simply vanished.
Will the 58 million Italians be able to pay the bills?
