Economist on ISIS Funding

According to the Economist, ISIS terrorists derive most of their funds from hot oil, taxation, extortion and ransoms.  Fanciful claims that looted artifacts provide ISIS' second largest funding source or that $36 million was derived from looted antiquities in one Syrian locality alone are no where to be seen.  Good for the Economist not to be taken in by such nonsense.
