Role of Economics in Love!Just I was going through an article ' Decoding Love, Economist style' by a young Economics student by name Twinkle Joshi in which she very nicely correlated the concepts of Economics applying to the commodity "love" like any other product. According to her, you can figure out the correct path to your perfect match by the right principles of Economics.
The exchange of mutual trust and affection was well compared with the barter system. The various elements that contribute to love are loyalty, caring, money, attractiveness, leisure times, personality, etc, are treated here as 'products'. The role of demand and supply comes in where the search is on for suitable candidates offering their products that match their taste.
If it is for Fun, it's okay just as the spiritual leaders deliver their speech to motivate their followers on the right path. It was quite interesting to read but I wondered whether 'Love' is such a cheap commodity and can be found it in the market; can get it at competitive rates with good quality. Has the value of the word 'Love' diminished? If so, the great love stories - had they gone with the wind?
Just share your views on this. You can also make a comparison like this with any of such concepts.
