Some continue to profit from Chinese artifacts

Tomb Robbing, Perilous but Alluring, Makes Comeback in China

Thieves seeking riches have hit a countryside filled with ancient burial sites as global demand for Chinese antiquities has surged.
In the late 1980's the CEO of the company I was general counsel for at the time told me about a neighbor who owned a beach house close to his in Florida whose wife had made a fortune from selling Chinces artifacts after that country opened trade with the US.

 Apparently, they had been rather poor, but they borrowed against most of their possessions and she went to China to buy up as many items as she could and brought them back to the US and sold them.  It developed into a lucrative business for them and the neighbor was asking about places to invest their profits from the business.
