It’s Valentine’s week. If you’re bitter about the whole thing, you can at least delight in the sheer economics of the whole thing.

I mean, if you break it down people fall into one of three groups on Valentine’s day: lovers out on the town, people who have to work the whole evening, and depressed singles at home with suicidal thoughts.

So boil it down a little more and take the Marxist perspective and you’ll see that it’s the perfect capitalist holiday: Go out and spend money, make money – or kill yourself.

Tuesday’s forecast: Happy Valentine’s Week.
