Paul Oyer, Professor of Economics in the Graduate School of Business at Stanford University, has written an extremely thought provoking book entitled Everything I Ever Needed to Know About Economics I Learned From Online Dating available on Harvard Business Review Press. The book is an extremely fun read and I really enjoyed interacting with Paul Oyer. For the interview with Paul, I experimented with a video interview for the first time. I must apologize for the unintended echo effect in parts of the audio (it is fascinating what you don’t hear live that you hear in a recording, will wear my audiophile headphones and noise canceling microphone next time for sure). It is also time for a new laptop.
Please enjoy the interview and please give the book a read. I would think those who have never used an online dating site would find the insights to be fascinating. Thanks!
