Beja Travel on According to Eric Schlosser, underground dealings covers 10 percent or more of the whole national market and, since the last three decades of the 20th century, has represented a parallel economy with its own secretive and well-hidden structure, its labor demand, prices and set of commodities. The American black market feeds on a queer mix of Puritanism and American’s reckless faith in the ideal of a free market. For example, Americans consume more marijuana but also imprison more people due to marijuana-related crimes than the rest of the world. American laws guarantee maximum freedom to Californian agricultural employers so that migrant workers have become mainly illegal immigrants from MEXICO. This is a clear instance of how the growing reliance on illegals has far-reaching implications beyond the underground, affecting wages, working conditions and even the practice of democracy in the rest of society. As Schlosser has pointed out, the division between an underground and an over-ground market should be challenged: the shadow economy is inextricably linked to the mainstream. Striking parallels can be drawn between the two: both tycoons and gangsters rise and fall, new technology shapes both markets, government intervention can reinvigorate black markets as well as mainstream ones, big business learns and profits from the underground.
