The aim of this paper is the analysis of the so-called sin
industry in Croatia, during the 2008–2013 recession period.
The sin industry in Croatia demonstrates resilience to
recession by increasing its share in the economy. The share
of the sin industry in the Croatian gross domestic product
hovers around 2.17%, reaching 6.2 billion kuna. The most
significant part of the sin industry is the manufacture and
distribution of alcoholic beverages, followed by the
manufacture of tobacco products and gambling activities.
Less important, although still significant, are illegal activities
such as prostitution and drug production and distribution.
The sin industry consists of the so-called illegal and legal
part. The illegal part accounts for 0.84% of the economy or
3.3 billion kuna. At the same time, the sin industry provides
22.5 thousand jobs, with a rising trend within the total
employment in the period of recession (+15.6%).
