Paul Oyer (): Again, drawing the parallel to the job market, online dating or any sort of matchmaking is very similar to finding a job. Similarly, every job is different and every employee is different. _____ Jasbina Ahluwalia (): When I think of things that you mentioned, I think about the lying or misrepresentation on online sites. There’s what an economist would call, “cheap talk,” and that’s rationally deciding to misrepresent yourself about your age or weight. If one’s self-perception is one thing, it can be difficult to cross that out.Do you see that from your experience and find that to be as big of a problem as some people think it is? There’s a whole other set of lying that we as economists aren’t very good at understanding. Along those lines of economic mindset, I’m wondering how else it helps give you an edge.Everything I Ever Needed to Know About Economics I Learned from Online Dating is an entertaining and non-technical explanation of numerous key ideas in microeconomics using examples from online dating, as well as labor markets and many product markets.Roadside MBA (with Michael Mazzeo and Scott Schaefer) is a non-technical Strategy guide for small businesses based on the authors’ extensive travel around the US interviewing small business owners.
On today’s show, we’ll be discussing Paul’s book, Everything I Needed to Know About Economics I Learned from Online Dating. To start with, I’m sure our listeners will want to know what led you to write this book in the first place.
_____ Jasbina Ahluwalia (): Hello everyone and welcome to Intersections Match’s Talk Radio, a monthly holistic lifestyle show focused on the continual evolution into the best versions of our authentic selves.
We and our guests discuss relationships and health and wellness, each of which contributes to meaningful and fulfilling lives. I’m a former practicing lawyer and the Founder of Intersections Match, the only elite national personalized matchmaking company focused on singles of South Asian descent nationwide in the US.
I collected a selected sample, because the only people I mentioned it to were the people where we both had at least enough interest to get to the third date. My current girlfriend and I have been going out for two and a half years now.
She certainly didn’t mind and thought it was all very entertaining.
