    US -vs- Montreal Outcalls Economics

    Rehashing here some old thoughts ... cough ...

    Given that Montreal represents a relatively small market ... weez ... I am not convinced that the local outcall girls would be optimizing their business by raising their current rates (assuming that "optimizing" is a business priority for them) ... cough ... For the sake of argument ... weez ... basic economics would suggest that the price elasticity of demand stretches further in major U.S. cities than it does in Montreal with the result that the point of equilibrium is generally much higher South of the border .... cough ... Rates are often not perfectly elastic and yet it appears that Montreal outcalls are having great difficulty to push theirs any higher without causing the demand to drop significantly ... cough ... Supply and demand certainly have a say but one may also want to give consideration to the fact that our Southern neighbours are known to be both socially and legally more coercive towards SP's than Canada ... cough ... Transposing the 20's prohibition economic model ... weez ... this would account for higher prices, part of it in the form of risk premiums ... cough ...

    Current market trends in Montreal indicate that supply and demand are optimized between $160 and $200 ... cough ... Such levels are probably heading down judging by the numerous specials offered these days... cough ... Our outcalls ... weez ... especially the ones paying booker fees ... weez ... are complaining of being sold like commodities and often blame each other for not pushing the rates upwards (which is off the charts: bring every Montreal outcalls rates up to $250 and all phones will cease to ring at once) ... cough ... Seeking for solutions ... weez ... some are turning indies (but often enough don't have the money nor the capabilities to advertise themselves ... weez ... let alone managing their bookings) ... weez ... others will try to sell themselves as a package including dinner dates and extra lady glamour (but how many among the SP's actually have the looks ... weez ... manners ... weez .. conversation skills and sophistication to be shown around like trophies?) ... weez ... others will downgrade their service and charge extra for GFE (and get negative reviews) ... weez ... and a few will give the U.S. market a try (and run back home as I know a few did) ... cough ...

    Now ... weez ... I am picturing the Montreal outcalls scene being controlled by one or two agencies - say - Eleganza and Montreal xxxtase: unregulated monopolies ... weez ... when unchallenged ... weez ... become coercive in a way that they deliberately price gouge clients by curtailing supply ... weez ... stretching at the same time the price elasticity of demand ... cough ... That would hurt the clients because ... weez ... should the Montreal outcalls business become monopolized ... weez ... chances are high that a simple oil change will be costing up to 25% more than the current equilibrium rate ... cough ... From the wealthier client's perspective ... weez ... maximizing monopoly return has its advantages - expensive pussy often equates to less travelled pussy (some might believe) ... weez ... which ... weez ... allegedly ... weez ... equates to cleaner pussy - but given that pimps too are bonded to the discipline of unbriddled capitalism ... weez ... and advantages set aside ... weez ... competitiveness is still a much desired environment to keep rates where they belong and bring the standards up .... cough ...

    Should the Montreal outcalls scene become one day monopolized ... weez ... no one will be blaming the Martins and the Johns for doing their job while other players can't tell a cell phone from their sport car stick shift ... cough ... Time maybe for new blood and thinking of opportunities for hostile takeover ... weez ... some once reputable agencies are no longer cited in the top 5 ... weez ... has anyone noticed? ... cough ... Sure enough a due diligence on the F.E.M.A.'s would reveal a few skeletons in the closet - who knows? - maybe some debts that remain unaccounted for or maybe somewhere a razor edge partnership agreement which "shotgun clause" was (almost tragically) understood literally .. cough ... Whatever the case may be it's all good: asset-based lenders LOVE undervalued assets ... weez ... especially if the said assets can keep the creditor's tan all year long... cough ...

    Conclusion: bring the Saigonese by boatloads ... cough ... The Montreal market is ready for outsourcing ... cough ....

    Interesting but do something about this asthma: it's annoying.
