BNET roundup: Spousonomics

Over at BNET this week, I have two posts, one on avoiding all-or-nothing thinking, and the other is a Q&A with Paula Szuchman, one of the authors of Spousonomics. Her book argues that much of marriage can best be understood as a question of how to allocate resources: time, attention, affection, money, and so forth. Many of us don’t get our incentives right. We suffer from the moral hazard of assuming our spouses will always be there. We fail to do proper cost-benefit analyses, and forget the philosophy of comparative advantage when it comes to chores. There’s a good discussion going, so please pop over and leave a comment.
