I love shows like The Wire, Breaking Bad, and The Sopranos. One common theme in all of those shows is money laundering. When you earn a lot of money illegally, you have to find a way to make it “clean.” While pop culture has made me well aware that money laundering happens on a large scale domestically, I had no idea how big the problem is for developing countries. Not only do these nations have to deal with the initial problem of criminal activity, but they also have to deal with the fact that these activities are sucking money out of their economies. Global Financial Integrity is a non-profit organization that is working to stop this. They are based in Washington, DC, and they promote “national and multilateral policies, safeguards, and agreements aimed at curtailing the cross-border flow of illegal money.”
Global Financial Integrity estimates that $1 trillion is transferred out of developing economies annually. This has the opposite effect of foreign aid. GFI combats this problem by “putting forward solutions, facilitating strategic partnerships, and conducting groundbreaking research.” The best way to better understand how they’re going about this to read some of GFI’s Reports. It’s not light reading, but if it’s the kind of stuff that you find interesting, then you’ll want to check out GFI’s Jobs page. Right now they’re looking for a Communications Associate – New Media.
