Description in Norwegian not found. We only have a description in English:

A racket is a planned or organized criminal act, usually in which the criminal act is a form of business or a way to regularly, or briefly but repeatedly, earn illegal or extorted money. A racket is often a repeated or continuous criminal operation.

Originally, and often still specifically, a racket was a criminal act in which the perpetrator or perpetrators offer a service that is fraudulently offered to solve a non-existent problem, or a service that will not be put into effect, or that would not otherwise exist if the racket did not exist. Conducting a racket is racketeering. Particularly, the potential problem may be caused by the same party that offers to solve it, although that fact may be concealed, with the specific intent to engender continual patronage for this party. The most common example of a racket is the "protection racket." The racket itself promises to protect the target business or person from dangerous individuals in the neighborhood; then either collects their money or causes the damages to the business until the owner pays. The racket exists as both the problem and its solution and is used as a method of extortion.

However, the term "racket" has expanded in definition and may be used less strictly to refer to any illegal organized crime operation, including those that do not necessarily involve fraudulent practices. For example, "racket" may be used to refer to the "numbers racket" or the "drug racket", neither of which generally or explicitly involve fraud or deception in regards to the intended clientele.

Racketeering is most often associated with organized crime, and the term was coined by the Employers' Association of Chicago in June 1927 in a statement about the influence of organized crime in the Teamsters union.

Avstemningsreglene

  • Du kan stemme opp eller ned. Vennligst alltid vurdere konteksten for å stemme, for eksempel en sang skal bli stemt opp eller ned i forhold til de andre sangene som finnes på albumet, en skuespiller prestasjoner i forhold til andre aktører i samme film, en bok med hensyn til andre bøker av samme forfatter eller innenfor samme sjanger.
  • En stemme kan avbrytes ved å klikke på motsatt stemme innen 24 timer. Du kan da stemme på nytt på samme gjenstand.
  • Hver bruker har en stemme per element innenfor en bestemt liste hver 24. time. Etter 24 timer kan du stemme på nytt på den samme varen innen den samme listen.
  • Du kan stemme på så mange elementer som du liker i en liste eller på samme element hvis det er en del av en annen liste. For eksempel kan du stemme David Bowie opp eller ned på listen over pop artister samt på listen over indie rock artister og på listen over rock artister etc.
  • Glad Stemmegivning!
