Summary
The author sets out to apply the rules of economics to save his floundering love life. For a time, everything seems to be clearer, but soon he finds himself more isolated than ever. It looks like economics doesn't have all the answers after all. Not, that is, until John Maynard Keynes comes along
Summary
A wise and humorous memoir about a young economist trying to apply the rules of the market to his own floundering dating life
