Marina Adshare

Economist Marina Adshade’s theories on the interplay of market forces in the matters of love and libido have brought her attention from around the globe. She is the author of Dollars and Sex: How economic influences sex and love. Using engaging research and economic analysis, and no small dose of humour, Adshade unlocks the mysteries behind our actions, thoughts and preferences regarding sexual relationships, gender, love and power.

Marina Adshade has spent the last ten years teaching economics and engaging in original economic research. In 2008, she launched an undergraduate course titled Economics of Sex and Love, which invited her students to approach questions of sex and love through an economist’s lens. The class was an immediate hit with students and, by the time the first term started, had generated international media attention. As a writer, Dr. Adshade hit her groove the moment she launched her blog, Dollars and Sex, attracting over three quarters of a million unique visitors. Today she teaches at the University of British Columbia’s Vancouver School of Economics.
