Speaking of incentives, here is an anecdote you probably don’t need to know. In Norway prostitution is illegal, but the ban has until recently been only on the seller side. Now, new legislation has also made buying illegal. Since this most likely will destroy much of the market, one political party (actually a member of the government coalition) suggested that the government pay severance packages to prostitutes that are forced out of business. My question is why only prostitutes? Shouldn’t all criminals that are forced to change careers because of government action be duly compensated?
