Lessons in Love & Economics

Ben Stein writes 9 rules on the “economics of love” in the NY Times Business section of July 13, 2008 (I paraphrase):

  1. “…the returns in love .. are roughly proportional to the amount of time and devotion invested;
  2. High quality love … yields more return than junk;
  3. Research pays off;
  4. … returns are greater when there is a monopoly;
  5. The returns … should at least equal the cost of the investment;
  6. Long term investment pays off;
  7. Realistic expectaions are everything;
  8. … stick with your winner;
  9. Have a dog … in your life.”
