I dropped by the Canada AM studios last week to talk with Marci Ien about Dollars and Sex. You can see that interview here.
My colleague, Brett Josef Grubistic, at the University of British Columbia reviewed Dollars and Sex for The Vancouver Sun. You can see that review here.
You can read her perspective on the economics of sex and love here.
Dollars and Sex took up three whole pages of the Sunday Province today (including the cover!). Big thank you to Paul Luke for writing such a comprehensive piece. You can see the full article here.

It occurs to me that some people might think that in light of #RoeVsWadeoverturned birth rates will increase - let me disabuse you of that notion.
In the long run, birth rates could stay the same and they could even decrease in the absence of safe access to abortion.
I've been studying and teaching these theories for well over a decade, you know what? I have never once thought the papers that look at the economic benefits of abortion as being particularly controversial.
Did I miss something?
Economics educators need to start teaching more of these theories and evidence - women’s issues have been sidelined by the economics profession for too long.
There are many ways to look at Abortion rights. They are for sure human rights. Their access for sure impacts health. Their access for sure reduces maternal death.
Are abortion rights part of strong economic policy? A 🧵 of the evidence.
