Markets in Everything: Drive-in Sex Stalls or "Government Funded Stimulus Project"

SWITZERLAND - "Zurich city parliament on Wednesday rubber-stamped a loan earmarked for the construction of drive-in sex stalls where punters ("johns") can meet prostitutes at purpose-built venues away from the city center. Representatives voted 74 to 30 in favour of the new development in Alstetten to the west of the city.

Ten garage-like booths will be erected on derelict land in an industrial area in Alstetten, complete with parking spaces and alarm buttons. The so-called "performance stalls" will be the first of their kind in Switzerland if the project goes ahead."

Why is this new?

Prostitues have been providing drive-up sex to men all over the U.S. Just ask Hugh Grant about this service.

Most major truck stops also have drive-up sex available with your diesel fuel.

sorry Mark, you had the wrong title for this. Should have been "government funded stimulus project"

Doe not such stimulus lead to inflationary pressure?

I contend such government funded projects lead to swelling booms, then busts.
