The Illegal Drug Industry in Latin America: The Coca-Cocaine Commodity Value Chain

Author:

Menno Vellinga

Abstract

In this article we will analyze the way in which the coca-cocaine industry has been organized recently, indicating how the changes in its organization have affected the functioning of the industry at the various phases of production and trafficking. Drug production and trafficking present a powerful challenge to Latin American development and it is our understanding that development in the last few decades cannot be well understood without bringing the illegal drug industry into the picture.
