Evelyn Korn, PhD Biography

Title:
Faculty of Economics and Business Administration at University of Marburg in Germany
Position:
Not Clearly Pro or Con to the question "Should Prostitution Be Legal?"
Reasoning:

“Prostitution has an unusual feature: it is well paid despite being low-skill, labor intensive, and, one might add, female dominated. Earnings even in the worst-paid type, streetwalking, may be several multiples of full-time earnings in professions with comparable skill requirements.”
