Pyramid Schemes

VEFA Holding HQ, one of largest "investors"

I wrote before about the Pyramid schemes that brought Albania on the edge of civil war in 1997. In the post you’ll find a link to a TOP channel documentary, which, however, is in Albanian. Nevertheless, it’s not difficult to understand the imagery. Check these articles: “The Albanian House of Cards,” “Uprising in Albania,” and another one mapping out the relation to organized crime today. Also, the Wiki pages on the pyramid schemes  and the 1997 rebellion offers a great portal to further information on the events of 1997.
