Default Re: Valley of the Dudes (Will Wilkinson & Kay Hymowitz)

Really interesting, if only there were more libertarian guys as charming as Will. But he and and Ms Hymowitz seemed to be talking past each other. I suspect its because they're referencing the experiences of two different socio-economic groups. Men in Will's world of high achievers/ policy wonks can be earning $150,000 at age 25 if they attend the right law or business school. And as I well know, THOSE men aren't confused about where they stand with women and have a ton of bargaining power at an early age. Plus, they all have expense accounts so picking up the check loses its symbolic meaning; they're always picking up the tab for everyone and the women know it.

Which can be problematic, as a guy madly grabbing for the check or ordering the Cristal (etc) is one way he signals he's REALLY interested. But if he simply puts the bill on his house account, you'll need further clues.
