Summary National Geographic explores the shadowy world of illicit trade, where dangerous multi-billion dollar criminal networks threaten whole sectors of our global economy. This documentary travels the globe to expose the dire consequences of this dirty industry: money laundering, political corruption, and the subversion of entire governments. From knock-off handbags to bootlegged compact discs to fake pharmaceuticals, this program reveals how consumers' insatiable demand for counterfeit merchandise has given birth to a vast criminal system that must be battled every single day.
