Inhaltsangabe

What drug lords learned from big business.

How does a budding cartel boss succeed (and survive) in the $300 billion illegal drug business? By learning from the best, of course. From creating brand value to fine-tuning customer service, the folks running cartels have been attentive students of the strategy and tactics used by corporations such as Walmart, McDonald's, and Coca-Cola.

And what can government learn to combat this scourge? By analyzing the cartels as companies, law enforcers might better understand how they work - and stop throwing away $100 billion a year in a futile effort to win the "war" against this global, highly organized business.

Your intrepid guide to the most exotic and brutal industry on earth is Tom Wainwright. Picking his way through Andean cocaine fields, Central American prisons, Colorado pot shops, and the online drug dens of the Dark Web, Wainwright provides a fresh, innovative look into the drug trade and its 250 million customers.

The cast of characters includes "Bin Laden", the Bolivian coca guide; "Old Lin", the Salvadoran gang leader; "Starboy", the millionaire New Zealand pill maker; and a cozy Mexican grandmother who cooks blueberry pancakes while plotting murder. Along with presidents, cops, and teenage hit men, they explain such matters as the business purpose for head-to-toe tattoos, how gangs decide whether to compete or collude, and why cartels care a surprising amount about corporate social responsibility.

More than just an investigation of how drug cartels do business, Narconomics is also a blueprint for how to defeat them.

Absolut hörenswert

Das Buch beleuchtet alle Seiten des Drogenhandels und zeigt klar, warum der "Krieg gegen die Drogen" scheitern muss und faktisch gescheitert ist. Die (für einige unangenehme) Wahrheit ist, dass nur eine Legalisierung wirklich Veränderung bringen kann.

Starts good, but gets boring.

The book starts out interestingly, but after a few hours goes into prison system, corruption, journalism etc. Due to the funny name of the book, I had different expectations about the content.

Sehr gutes Hörbuch!

Eines der besten Bücher/Hörbücher im audible Katalog. Sehr interessant geschrieben, abwechslungsreich und verständlich und mit einer gewissen Prise Humor. Tom Wainwright schafft es wie kaum ein anderer die Welt der organisierten Kriminalität zu beschreiben und nachvollziehbar darzustellen.
Der Sprecher/Leser ist überragend. Klare Empfehlung für alle mit Interesse an Wirtschaft und Weltgeschehen,

Am Anfang stark...

... hinten mit einigen Längen. Dennoch: der ökonomische Ansatz ist interessant; angereichert mit „Frontberichten“ funktioniert das gut.

interesting facts, entertaining content

Tom Wainwright takes the phenomenon of drug cartels (as well as other organized crime) from the economic view and gives astonishing insight and facts, presented in entertaining manner. Worth more than a one-time read/listening. Thanks.
