Working Papers from Portsmouth University - Department of Economics
Economists have hitherto neglected the behaviour of the personal introduction agency sector. This paper presents estimates of the average cost function. It is found to have a U-shaped pattern. Average costs are also shown to be higher when the agency guarantees a minimum number of dates and turns away potential clients.
