The Laws of Earning Power

Physical attration and earning power have been ranked equally between men and women in a recent study about what drives people to date.

the article published by Northwestern University states,"But in reality men and women were equally inspired by physical attraction and equally inspired by earning power or ambition. “In other words good looks was the primary stimulus of attraction for both men and women, and a person with good earning prospects or ambition tended to be liked as well,” said Eli Finkel, assistant professor of psychology at Northwestern. “Most noteworthy, the earning-power effect as well as the good-looks effect didn’t differ for men and women.” "

So much for saying women just want men for money, or men want women just for looks.
