Interview with Tom Wainwright about the harrowing and sometimes grisly experiences he endured while writing Narconomics: How to Run a Drug Cartel. Discusses the parallels between the drug trade and regular businesses; how ideas of economics and business apply to any entrepreneurial or business venture; how drug cartels engage in corporate social responsibility, branding, and even PR campaigns; why drug cartels franchise, regulate labour, branch out online, and diversify into legal (and ubiquitous) industries; how an economist gets discovered wearing a GPS device to a meeting with a drug lord and lives to tell the tale; and more.
