The Economics of Dating: How Game Theory and Demographics Explain Dating in D.C.

Featuring Emily Ekins

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.
