does crime pay?
you have to consider the 3 years behind bars too...
hours in a work year (aprox.) 2085
work hours in jail: 2085*3=6255
profit 4,400,000 - 120000 = 4280000
devided equallly between them: 4280000/11 = 389090.91
now break that down to an hourly wage: 389090.91/6255=$62.20/hr
This assumes that the time spent manageing the scam it value-equivelent to the cost of food/shelter/etc while in prison)
In 2004, the average chinese wage in urban areas was 7947 USD / 2085 hr = $7.75/hr
Not too bad. Bussness sense says crime pays!
