Paradise is a Brothel.

"People think Amsterdam is the prostitution capital of Europe but Germany has more prostitutes per capita than any other country in the continent, more even than Thailand: 400,000 at the last count, serving 1.2 million men every day. Those figures were released a decade ago, soon after Germany made buying sex, selling sex, pimping and brothel-keeping legal in 2002. Two years later, prostitution in Germany was thought to be worth 6 billion euros – roughly the same as Porsche or Adidas that year. It’s now estimated to be 15 billion euros." (link)

The Gerhard Schröder/Angela Merkel economic miracle: prostitution in Germany.

Happy Women's Day, belated...

  1. Taxable I bet. Formerly, as an underground economy, not so much.
