More than ever before, we are faced with collections of highly adaptable crooks that expand and contract over time to maximize their profits as discrete opportunities arise across the globe. These transnational organized crime groups are pilfering billions of dollars from the American economy alone. Their huge profits from supplying illicit goods to the world’s wealthy markets make them particularly challenging for state enforcement agencies, and no single nation can quell the threat they present. Transnational organized crime, with its dire implications for public safety, public health, democratic institutions, and economic stability, accelerates many of the most serious threats to national and international security in our brave new world and consequently poses a significant and growing threat to global stability.
