Money laundering is a process vital to making crime worthwhile. Among its other negative socio-economic effects, money laundering transfers economic power from the market, government, and citizens to criminals. Furthermore, the sheer magnitude of the economic power that accrues to criminals from money laundering has a corrupting effect on all elements of society. The economic and political influence of criminal organizations can weaken the social fabric, collective ethical standards, and ultimately the democratic institutions of society. Laundering enables criminal activity to continue. It can be easy to understand the impact of money laundering on the initial victims - those who lost funds as a result of the predicate crime. But there can be an even deeper, more lasting effect on society as a whole. In this article, we use the AHP method for measured, social effects of money laundering, such as addiction, Increase crimes, Divorce, Lack of social security, Immorality and Spread of poverty.
