But why won’t this work in the rest of Europe? Although this service would be very welcome in every city, it won’t work in most Western European cities. Besides the everlasting argument of regulation in the public realm, we assume that the real explanation lies in our socio-economic conditions. Entrepreneurship at such a low level only works without a proper social security system. In most Western European countries, social security payments are higher than the possible amount of money one can earn with hiring toilet space on the street. Besides the ones living on street and having a pretty unorganized life, no ‘normal’ citizen is poor enough to be motivated to earn less money while doing this job. On the other hand, this job requires a tough survivor mentality. Conclusion: altogether we’re too rich for some forms of entrepreneurship and urban creativity. Which, by the way, is a fact that I can live with.
