Prostitution Cartels

Tyler Cowen asks, “Should prostitution be cartelized?

It’s effectively a cartel in some parts of the world;

“The police have arrested ten foreign nationals for alleged involvement in prostitution…

“From what we gathered from the investigation so far, it appears that they are sending the money made from prostitution to their agents in their country…The individuals themselves are paid by their agents. The investigation is still ongoing and the full report will be made public very soon,” a police spokesperson said.”

In countries with large relative expatriate populations it will be extremely difficult root out prostitution.
