When he heard about the Radio company trying to tear down Pokemon Tower, and thus desecrating the dead pokemon the laid to rest there, He had his grunts go to the tower, and take possession of it, discourage the radio tower from placing there there due to risk of team rocket coming back. (As we learn in GSC, this plan didn't work. This is because they were forced to leave the tower before the news could spread.)
This caused the pokemon resting there to begin attacking blindly, so he made a deal with Sliph Co, to purchase the Sliph Scope. However, Sliph Co couldn't just hand it over, that would be bad PR for them. So instead they arranged a deal for Team Rocket to break in, and for the Sliph Scope to get 'Stolen.' This would allow them to get more data on how well it was working when Giovanni used it, while they 'Made a new one.' since the whole thing was planned in advanced, no one would actually get hurt. I mean, its not like some kid would break in, disrupt the whole thing, and causing chaos as the actual criminals broke ranks and actually started hurting people. What are the chances of that happening?
Giovanni also ran a casino, the funds for which he used to continue to run team rocket, and keep the ACTUAL criminals off the streets. Trainers who take part in it, and bring in funds for him, would get a chance to purchase rare, often sought after pokemon, and items, from a shelter he was running. Pokemon like Abra, Porygon, and Dratini, along with TM's, one of his own inventions, meant to expand the abilities of pokemon, to help better mandkind.
