Dollars & Sex: Marina Adshade's National Post Cover Story
Adshade is the author of the forthcoming book Dollars and Sex: How Economics Influences Sex and Love. She also publishes a blog by the same name and currently teaches at the Vancouver School of Economics at the University of British Columbia. Her intriguing insights on human sexuality have been wildly popular both in the classroom, online, and now on the cover of The National Post. Although we may not fully understand the complexities of falling in love, Adshade offers us a unique approach to understanding human relationships. In the article, and in her keynotes, she explains how important economic factors are to the many of the complex decisions we make in relationships. There's certainly a lot of emotion behind human courtship, but as Adshade proves, market forces are a major player in our love lives, too.
