People crammed into boats and trekking across borders have become the dominant images of Europe's migrant crisis. In the shadows, however, there are those who are profiting, for whom every migrant is a business opportunity. Authorities in Germany estimate the cost of housing and feeding migrants alone at about 12,000 euros ($13,400) per person, per year.Entrepreneur Bert Karlsson is among those profiting from the wave of migrants coming to Europe. Another is Germany, where the government has forecast between 800,000 and 1 million arrivals this year.Kocks denies this, saying European Homecare is simply better placed to keep costs low.When European Homecare relinquished a contract to run the Traiskirchen refugee shelter in Austria three years ago, it was succeeded by ORS, a Swiss company.
