Crime Impact Stats

A couple of stories on El Universal's front page last week (though that's no longer the ringing endorsement that it once was, as of two posts ago) offer an idea of the costs of Mexico's insecurity: one, from a private security trade group (and likely inflated) is that businesses lose 36 percent of their utility because of the costs of crime; two, from the same group, crime costs Mexicans on average just under 10,000 pesos a year, or about $800.
