Dirty Money
By

Rating
In this witty and revelatory investigation of the so-called dismal science, University of British Columbia professor Marina Adshade skips the usual widgets and uncovers how the market comes to bear on our most intimate decisions: sex, dating, courtship, love, marriage, even breaking up. The science of `sexonomics' is born: How much money does an ugly guy need to have to attract as many women via an online dating site as a hot man? Is modern marriage just an opportunity to consume more goods and services? Does raising the price of beer reduce risky sex? Why does a spike in the sale of sex toys predict an upcoming recession, while an increase in the number of breast lifts indicates a perkier economy is on the way? Which comes first: a prosperous nation or a promiscuous one? Once you read Dirty Money, you'll never look at your money - or your relationships - the same way again

About the Author

Dr Marina Adshade teaches economics at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada. In 2008, she launched an undergraduate course entitled `Economics of Sex and Love', which invited her students to approach questions of sex and love through an economist's lens. The course was an instant hit, and led to the launch of the blog, Dollars and Sex, which can be found at MarinaAdshade.com.

Reviews

"A delightful book... Adshade shows that forces of supply and demand indeed loom large in the implicit market for romance." Robert H. Frank * The New York Times *
