Great book. Part economics and how a drug cartel is like other multinational businesses. How legal prescriptions can lead to heroin addiction. It ends with mathematical proof that attacking the raw materials of drug production to try to increase prices is the least efficient way. Proof of how little price change effects usage. How reducing demand would cut drug consumption and also make the drug business less profitable per unit for the cartels.

The author appears to ignore certain realities, such as the financing of the coup to overthrow the democratically elected president of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya, by the Millennium Challenge Corporation [chaired by Hillary Rodham Clinton], and the later support of that military coup, by then sec'y of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton, which allowed the cocaine-trafficking oligarch there to run things in that unfortunate country!
