Economic view of Online Dating

Paul Oyer, an economist at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, is the author of “Everything I Ever Needed to Know About Economics I Learned From Online Dating,” published last month by Harvard Business Review Press. Through his own experience, Mr. Oyer became intrigued by the economics at work in the online dating marketplace. His book explores how knowledge of economic concepts can help narrow Cupid’s aim. Mr. Oyer’s personal strategy turned out to be a winning one: he met his current partner online.

1) Don’t have debt rise faster than income

2) Don’t have income rise faster than productivity

3) Do all that you can to raise your productivity

Draghi as ECB Master of Suspense Keeps Investors on Edge

Mario Draghi’s habit of springing surprises means that few can say what he’ll do when European Central Bank officials decide on monetary policy today.

Inflation at a four-year low and volatile market rates speak for further action by the Governing Council, even after it cut official rates to record lows in November. At the same time, signs of economic improvement and the central bank’s prediction that price gains will gradually return to target suggest the ECB president may prefer to hold fire. That’s the call by 62 of the 66 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News, while 4 predict a cut in the benchmark rate to 0.1 percent from 0.25 percent.

Get used to low economic growth – it’s here to stay

Conventional economic policies will not solve unemployment, writes Jørgen Randers, we should think about rationing paid work and introducing compulsory holidays

Will the rich world again see the high economic growth rates we got used to in the decades prior to the year 2000? An increasing number of macroeconomists seem to think that the answer is no. I agree: growth will remain low. Furthermore, conventional policies to enhance economic growth will be ineffective.
