CNBC's 'Mob Money: Murders and Acquisitions' Premieres July 27th

Joseph (Joe the Boss) Masseria
was supposedly murdered by
Albert Anastasia, Vito Genovese,
Joe Adonis and Benjamin Siegel.
For more than 80 years, the Mafia has represented the dark underbelly of capitalism and a warped vision of the American Dream. What keeps the mob in the red is corruption, violence and murder. In the Mafia, murder isn’t personal. It’s business. So says ad copy hyping CNBC's new show, called 'Mob Money.' Hit this link to get more details, or just keep reading.

The upcoming show explores seven different murders and how they helped line mobsters' pockets. From the 1931 murder of Joe Masseria to the 1985 murder of Paul Castellano, millions of dollars hang in the balance in some of the American Mafia's biggest mob hits.

  2. Murder is not a business. Murder, in traditional organized crime, is a tool to keep business running smoothly. The two shouldn't be confused.

  3. I think, though of course this is not based on any info from CNBC, that each episode will profile a mob murder -- then show who profited from it -- financially (though power goes hand in hand with profit, not just in the mob; it is the basis of capitalism). We are seeing a highly respected business news network find a way to report on the Mafia. If anything, it is testament to how strong (and profitable for the book-film-tv industry)interest in the mob is. I am still waiting for a Sopranos-like cable series to be made. And I look forward to it -- David Chase is not the only capable auteur on television!
