Evolutionary psychology: Good news, at last, for credit card companies!

"After eons of evolution, men are hardwired to overspend and max out credit cards to attract mates, a study last year concluded."

Of course it did.

You can be sure that the study would not have concluded that the countless generations of men who drove hard bargains out of necessity - for whom it was a matter of honour as well as necessity to do so - were our far more representative ancestors.

Ooga ooga.
