uk corruption capitalism 

it's so funny that the uk economy under capitalism requires an official designated semi-autonomous "Crime Zone"

uk corruption capitalism 

all the money that changes hands legitimately is small potatoes in the context of the economy. in the grand scheme of things, it's a little bit of cash that changes hands.
it's a small offshoot of the *real economy*, where the *real money* is, where the vast majority of economic activity happens under capitalism, which is 100% crime-based. and it's totally necessary for it to be criminal; capitalism literally can't work under the "legit" it declares for itself.

uk corruption capitalism 

capitalism is: you have a designated Crime Zone where (statistically) all money is illegally shuffled between corrupt financial agents. and as a side effect of that, a statistically negligible amount of money is used by "the public" to trade food, clothes etc. the latter set of financial activity is so minuscule and unintended it may as well be a rounding error. it's an emergent epiphenomenon of capitalism-as-designed, which is inherently just high-stakes financial crime.
