Book of the Week: Dollars and Sex by Marina Adshade

Back in 2008, when Professor Marina Adshade’s started her Dalhousie University course on “sexonomics,”  not only did it keep her students interested, it attracted some international attention, with stories in The Daily Mail and other U.K. press. Now based out of the University of British Columbia, Adshade has compiled the titillating facts and figures from her course and her blog on into her first book Dollars and Sex. You may have never thought you’d read about fiscal theories for pleasure, but Adshade shows how the very compelling topics of love and sex are better understood through the lens of economics.
