An apocryphal story about marriage….

Posted in unusual tagged at 6:27 am by qballkubal

Duh, gw rasa kebanyakan baca buku ekonomi dan bisnis gak baik juga buat kesehatan otak. Selain bikin gw jauh dari lingkungan sosial, ini makin membuat aura pheromon gw menurun dalam menarik perhatian wanita- wanita diluar sana. Taiah, macam ada yang mau aja ama perjaka ting-ting yang belom (bukan TIDAK ya) berduit gara- gara masih kuliah ini (moga-moga bentar lagi lulus dah!)

Anyway, gw menemukan satu joke yang menurut gw aneh. Aneh soalnya menurut gw hanya yang menjadikan buku ekonomi sebagai pengganti kekasihnya karena ditolak terus- terusan ataupun menderita cinta bertepuk sebelah tangan yang bisa memahami lucunya cerita ini. Just wanna share this with all of you. From Managerial Economics: A problem solving approach by Luke M. Froeb and Brian T. McCam.

One time, an economist and his fiancee were planning to get married. The two were receiving premarital counseling from a priest. The priest’s first question to them was “Why do you want to get married?” The economist’s fiancee answered, “Because I love him and want to spend the rest of my life with him.” The economist had somewhat different answer: “Because long-term contracts induce higher levels relationship-specific investment.” A year later, trying hard to find the right words to express how he felt about his wife, he wrote an anniversary e-mail-using a nice cursive fonts-declaring that his “relationship-specific investment was earning an abnormally high rate of return.”
