Love has always been an inexhaustible source of passion, happiness, inspiration, pleasure and above all money. It is closely related to the emotions of man and affects all common mortals and when it arrives the control is out. we act without real control, and that makes the happiness of the economy because when we love we do not count. The turnover related to love is significant. Some have understood and know how to benefit. Hence, they create a holiday to satisfy the lovers on the one hand and the economy on the other.
In addition, with a simple inspiration, some could build a real wealth. This is the case of the British author (EL JAMES) of the trilogy “fifty shade of Grey”. Indeed, thanks to this novel, this lady is one of the fortunes of this world. Love can be an industry because it is also a provider of funds.
In this article, we will discuss the economics of Valentine’s Day and EL JAMES trilogy “Fifty Shade of Gray”, which have two points in common: love and money.
The holidays have always been a moment of joy. A way for everyone to forget for only a few hours the problems of every day. But also, a moment of inattention, and spending because even holidays have budget so an economic aspect. Indeed, holiday has a real economic potential because it can generate millions of euros. Thus, traditional or religious holidays have an undeniable part on the economy.
As if that were not enough, holiday was invented from scratch to generate money to help the economy take a breath of fresh air. Valentine’s Day is one of them, a real boon for certain sectors to realize or supplement their turnover.
Thus, when the pleasure is mixed with the economy it is “all good” because one spends without counting even if it is punctual. Valentine’s Day is a holiday created, invented to earn money and satisfy lovers in perpetual quest for a means of expression of their love. We are or have been all in love at some point in our lives.
