They pit employees against each other to maximize performance, set financial quotas and are adapting to a rapidly changing technological landscape.
That sounds like a description of corporate executives, but it also applies to the illegal sex trade, according to a study published Wednesday by the Urban Institute in Washington. "Many pimps had a business savvy, and they knew what they needed to do to maximize profits," said Meredith Dank, the study's lead author and a former commodities analyst. "They saw themselves as managers, as business owners, as entrepreneurs."
The conclusions are based on interviews in eight U.S. cities. The sex trade in seven (Washington, Atlanta, Dallas, Seattle, San Diego, Miami and Denver) totaled $975 million in 2007, or $1 billion in today's dollars, according to the study. The eighth (Kansas City, Mo.) wasn't included in the economic analysis. Funded by a $499,000 Justice Department grant, the study relied on more than 260 interviews of police, pimps and prostitutes, the institute said.

Glad our tax dollars are spent wisely.
Well, except for that beating and raping thing.
Other than that, its just like...
Did we tax payers foot the bill for this totally mindless piece of garbage?
I can’t tell you how many times the accounting manager has beaten us for failing to accurately report. Heck, he broke an engineer’s arm. But, all those engineers keep doing it because they’re addicted to drugs.
I bet that there is a $500,000 maximum in someone's budget before it goes up a level to be approved and the spouse, relative or close friend of someone in the DoJ is the contractor.
They could have called me here at home, and I could've told them the same thing for free. Glad we're dumping cash into such ratholes.
How many employees did Gates and Buffett slap around?
“Pimps Act Much Like Managers in Any Other Business,”
In a way. Back in college, my employer was one of the biggest madams in the city, and for cash, I used to drive the escorts to their umm, “clients”. They hated being called pimps. Unlike real pimps, they never hit their girls. They just fire them on the spot.
There was a thing going around a few years ago about how being a consultant was like being a ho’. When your client beats you up, your manager blames you, and sends you out to a new client. You do the hard, dirty work, your manager gets the real money, and you get enough to live on. And so on.
Talk about “job lock”!

Insane that our government thought this was money well spent. Of course, there is this:

These grants always go to lefties it seems
Haha, Upgrayedd! The second “d” is for a double dose of pimpin’
And if you or I did something similar with our bank deposits it would be called structuring and we would be on our way to jail for money laundering.
