Wealth decline, a woman's skirt get shorter?


In the 1920s, a Wharton School economist George Taylor, the degree of the rise and fall of national economy and women's skirt length. Today, we explore the increase in the length of the woman's skirt can stimulate economic growth, it is recommended that the exposure of men dressed, wearing a sexy woman in this new study, they can show off the best increase position valuables on buying preferences.
The following Taylor's theory is controversial. He said that the good economic situation, the women wear short skirts to show off their sexy stockings; but in the bleak economic times, they wear a skirt, because can not afford stockings. Therefore, the length is inversely proportional to the rise of the economy and women skirt.
For a long time, I do not think this theory with verifiable. Recently, I like some of the market / evolutionary biology scholars decided to let one of their students (OK, this speculation is pure standing on my side) wearing a sexy miniskirt, dressed to the nines, to see this time the men will not change their preferences to display the identity of expensive consumer goods, when the experiment was conducted by this dress woman, may make George Taylor blush.
Experiment: the experimenter (a beautiful young women) so that each man participating in the experiment to watch ten chart, look at the time of each image for a second, six kinds of goods to be placed every ten figure car, these six items at the same time practical (such as toilets will be paper) and show off their wealth type (such as Porsche, Aston Martin and Maserati). When the men watching these pictures, the experimenter as lists of their own impression of the goods within 25 seconds to write on paper. According to our projections, the items on the list should be the deepest things in a short impression.
This is really simple and beautiful experiment! Interesting in that our half of the subjects were dressed in ordinary clothes (think farm girls skirt), the other half were wearing low-cut mini denim skirt, foot sexy heels (early experimental version of the experiment the girls are disguised to look into on behalf of the product image).
Finally, the experiments show that the face of the female experimenter wearing more than the men in a faithful marriage relationship, show the status of the precious commodities in the commodity list is written about the same probability, the face of sexy experimenter 33% probability surface on the dress of ordinary female experimenter probability of 35%. However, single men wrote in the face of the female experimenter wearing a miniskirt to show the identity of the precious commodities probability is 43% higher than their face 33% of the dress common female experimenter.
Put aside for the status of their relationship, both types of men in the face of a female experimenter dressed in miniskirts, the probability of their impression of the practical goods are very low, I think they are distracted.
Evolutionary theory to explain when a single man the face of a beautiful young attractive woman, he will often pro-gaze can help increase a man charm goods, he may subconsciously believe that those precious commodities to show their wealth, so as to achieve the purpose of attracting front of the opposite sex.
This raises an interesting point. Over time as the evolution of women fashion, they wear more and more sexy, is it that causes men increasingly prefer to buy valuables to show off their own property and status?
Of course not. A basic theory of economics, commodity prices and relative scarcity. If the scantily clad women is rare, so their prices will be high (the amount of "price" refers to man in order to attract a relatively beautiful woman to show their valuables on the high level of purchasing power). However, when the scantily clad woman is a substantial increase in their prices is bound to decline, because men no longer need to compete with each other to pursue a relatively scarce commodity. For this reason, when the purchasing power of a woman's skirt more and more short, the nature of the show off their wealth goods is likely to decline.
In the past few years, the relative lack of community is a wealthy man. Is this the moment to drive fashion trends to keep the miniskirt into the reason? This may years ago, George Taylor found the real impact.
