A Marketplace week-long investigative series explores "how underground entrepreneurs - or criminals - make their business work while operating in ... America's many illegal markets." Washington-based reporter Steven Henn reveals how, in one way or another, government has pushed underground many industries and activities - including currency exchange, drugs, gun sales and ownership, gambling, abortion services, prostitution and midwives' birth-help practice. The series poises the question: Are these industries made more or less dangerous and abhorrent now that they have been pushed underground? One of the main reporting challenges has been protecting the identity of the interviewed criminals.
