Strikingly Beautiful Lesson in Economics

I don’t know if this is one of those internet stories that turns out to be fiction, but it’s funny nonetheless.

Supposedly a woman put an ad on the NYC Craigslist. She described herself as a strikingly beautiful 25-year-old woman who was looking to marry a man who earns a minimum of 500k a year — which pretty much translates to “lower middle class” in Manhattan.

At any rate, the woman received a reply that contains more lessons in economics than she probably ever got in high school.

Read the ad, and the reply. It’ll make you Laffer out loud.
