Abstract

This work presents a reading of the organized crime under two perspectives: on one hand, the Becker's theory suggests an important role of the public security expending in the battle between the State and organized crime; on the other hand, the trust that Mafia tries toimpose in market relations, according Zamagni and Sen's contributes, makes Mafia an important social player in many economic backward countries.
