Question Request: February 2023
What better way to Celebrate Valentine's Day?
Happy Valentine’s day, readers. We here at Sage Economics hope the 52% of you celebrating have a positively steamy one, while the 48% of you who don’t enjoy the $25.9 billion you collectively won’t spend today. If you want to dive a little deeper into the economics of Valentine’s day, the National Retail Federation has this nice dashboard.
We’re of the opinion that there’s nothing sexier than an economics-based Q&A, so please, make like Cupid unleashing a barrage of heart-tipped arrows and shoot us your questions for our February Q&A post (by leaving a comment or replying to this email). We got so many good questions for January’s Q&A that we had to break it up into part I (by Zack) and part II (by Anirban).
New inflation data comes out in about two minutes; unlike the rest of Valentine’s Day, we hope it’s cooler than expected. We’ll cover that and all the other most recent indicators in our Week in Review column on Friday. Week in Review is just for paid subscribers; if that’s not you and you want it to be, treat yourself to a special Valentine’s Day treat: paid subscriptions are 33% off today only.
