Article of the Week
Fewer romantic prospects may lead to riskier investments
Researchers at the University of Michigan conducted a series of studies investigating the effect of perceived odds of romantic success on investment choices. Results indicate that environmental cues that suggest one will have a relatively hard time finding a mate can drive people to concentrate their investment choices into a few high-risk, high-return options; even when the decisions are not explicitly related to romantic outcomes.
