In college, I wrote a paper on International Sporting events and whether or not they were actually good for the economy. Of the 4 most recent sporting events (2 World Cups, and 2 Summer Olympics), only one country was better off by hosting the event and part of the reason is that it has legalized prostitution.
I had to present the paper to my professor, and you have not lived until you have been able to use the word "Mega-brothel" in an academic setting. So much giggling was being suppressed by everyone in the room.
