You can own a slave for $90. You can’t even buy a coat for $90.
At that dirt cheap price there must be thousands of people being sold. Millions even. So, if you want to start a sure-fire business, become a slave trader. Capture some people—particularly women and children—ship them halfway around the world and rake in millions of dollars, yen, euros, rand, rupees, pesos, whatever.
With 27 million slaves around the world, this trade is worth $32 billion a year and you should get in on it!
You don’t want to be a slave trader? Then start a local slave-based business! Be creative like the man in Falls Church, Va., who kept 24 Indonesian women locked in his basement, sending them out only to clean the houses of his affluent clients. He had a legitimate housecleaning business and got away with using slave labor for eight years. You could, too.
Realtors are twiddling their thumbs, salesmen can’t move expensive gas guzzlers, heavy industry is history (at least in the U.S.). But slavery is a trade that refuses to die. You can use slaves to pick tomatoes, dig diamonds, paint fingernails, dig coal, braid hair, walk the street, mold bricks, cook your food, raise your children, mow lawns, sew clothing, hook rugs. It’s one small business that doesn’t know the meaning of the word recession or depression or even morality.
Human trafficking is the largest, fastest growing criminal enterprise in the world today. It’s foolproof. Market proof. Crash proof. It’s a money maker. And, hey, you can get around the criminal part. Thousands of human traffickers outfox poorly financed law enforcers and live productive lives as masters of the oppressed.
And if you think the investment–$90 per unit—is still too high, be glad you’re living in the 21st century. In the mid-1800s, the going price for a slave was $1,200—that’s about $45,000 in today’s dollars. All the seed money you need to start your business today is a measly ninety bucks.
