Keith Rankin: Supply, Demand And The Oldest Industry

- Labour MP Georgina Beyer said in Parliament a couple of weeks ago that “prostitution is a demand-driven activity”. She's wrong. Sure, all goods and services that are freely sold have a demand. But a demand-driven industry is one that expands when the demand for it increases, contracts when the demand for it decreases, and stays the same size when demand neither increases nor decreases.

Sludgegate Day 3: “There’s More Truth Than You Know"
