Hayek Auditorium
Featuring the author Jon Birger, Contributor, Fortune; with comments by Karin Agness, President, Network of enlightened Women; moderated by Emily Ekins, Research Fellow, Cato Institute.
How do economics and game theory explain the dating scene in D.C.? To find out, join us on October 27 at 6:00 p,m. for a reception and book forum with journalist Jon Birger, author of Date-onomics: How Dating Became a Lopsided Numbers Game.

Using a combination of basic economic principles, demographics, game theory, and number crunching, Jon Birger explains America’s curiously lopsided dating and marriage market among single, college-educated, looking-for-a-partner women.

Birger investigates not only the consequences of this unequal ratio of college-educated men to women on dating but also a host of other social issues.

We hope that you will join us for a lively evening discussion of economics, game theory, and dating.
