Dollars and Sex: How Economics Influences Sex and Love by Marina Adshade

Dollars and Sex (2013) demystifies the complex issues of sex and love by looking beyond the raging hormones and cultural mores and exploring the driving force behind most of the world’s sexual trends: economics. By applying simple economic theory, we can better understand why we regard romance the way we do as well as why contemporary relationships face so many challenges.

  • Economists and cognitive scientists
  • Readers curious about the relationship between money and love
  • Couples hoping to learn more about sexual and marital behavior

Dr. Marina Adshade, PhD, teaches at the University of British Columbia’s School of Economics. She regularly writes for the Globe and Mail and is a frequent contributor to publications such as Time and the Wall Street Journal.
