Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal by Zach Weinersmith for October 03, 2014
We have asymmetric knowledge of each other's preferences. Okay. Given that fact, it would be a non-optimal expenditure of time and resources for me to buy you a gift myself. Therefore, I analyzed my past gift-buying behavior and determined the amount of time and wealth I typically would've spent. So, Happy Birthday. I allot you P of my dollars and T of my time, with as a conversion factor. I think learning economics has made you respond inappropriately to other people's feelings. Thanks!
