Although they do not fit into the dominant representation of the “Economy”, that is, as including all those “productive” activities that result in waged labour for a capitalist firm, both mafia and anti-mafia represent one of the many ways people organise to survive. After introducing some of the fundamental characteristics of mafia enterprise, I delve into three prime strategies that are being effectively deployed to counter mafia enterprises in the Italian context. The themes I address are property, labour, and communication. The contribution seeks not to carry out detailed analyses, but rather to map out the core elements of these economies that may be of use to different contexts around the world in countering organized crime.
