BBC’s More or Less wanted to know why 74% of the same sex divorces in the UK are in marriages between two women. I don’t have the complete answer to this question – there is a very serious lack of data. But I have some theories I was happy to share with Tim Harford.
This week I chatted with Kelli Grant and Mathew Passy at the Wall Street Journal about the economic changes in the marriage market.
The whole show is hilarious, but if you are short on time I am in the first hour: introduced at 7 minutes (actually worth listening to!) and the interview starts at around the 40 minute mark.
Here’s a great interview with Natasha Mitchell at Life Matters, at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation.
In this week’s FIRE News podcast is all about sexonomics. Dr. Marina Adshade, an economics professor at Dalhousie University, talks about her work looking at the economics of love and sex, which encompasses analysis of marriage, promiscuity, polygamy, and the cheapest night of the week to hire a prostitute.
