That's a lot of money that a lot of people would not like to pay taxes on, while many other people would love to collect taxes on

I'm guessing that most of it is tax free.

Finally it is official. Out of that sum allocate a minimum of 10% to a certain protection "squad" on regular basis and another 5% immediate cash for when they turn up or passing by etc etc.No wonder it is always protected and seldom raided or challanged.😆

I'm getting on a bit.  In the little Thai Town I live in there are 2 brothels in the Soi, one on each side of a nice bar I and other older gents frequent.  Now these brothels only cater for local Thai men and not for westerners they go other places if required.  Most nights if we are still at he bar at midnight or on a very early walk  there is usually  often streams of law enforcement people making visits to these places getting their free shots and with big smiles on their face, only to return an another time.  TIT.

Thailand/Gross domestic product: 406.8 billion USD (2016)

Thai sex industry: 260 billion baht 

63.91 % of the Thai GDP 

unstable sector 

 

Now, if we divide your 63.91% with the $-Thai exchange rate, we get 2%

Happy now?

Don’t change anything. I like it being illegal yet wide spread and not taxed and negotiated prices between consenting adults and money flowing back home to the family and the variety of venues - massage parlor, beer bar, street walker or iPhone app. Peace.

What a disgrace that there is not a credible education system, with follow up employment, providing a decent income, so the girls who are caught up in this don't have to hide their faces in shame.

The current situation is the consequence of the total absence of good governance and nothing else.

They spend a ton of money on education.  That's not the problem.  The government has a good education budget.  They could double the budget and it would make no difference. 

 

The girls don't hide their faces in shame they go back home and buy houses and build hotels.  I guess you don't know much about Thailand

But should not be in any country. It's just another form of the oppression if women by the Patriarchy and male dominated religion. Prostitution should not be confused with exploitation .

There are a lot of women's groups in Australia who will tell you that men make women into prostitutes and abuse them.  Women never want to have their bodies abused but it is men who convince them to choose the path

I'm sure the Government is thinking, "now how can we get a bit of tax from that??"

TAT will be eyeing 300 billion by the end of 2018. They're working on strategies as we speak to try and tickle the fancy of the Chinese...
