Fashion Meets Finance II

Speaking of the need for mass execution, another "Fashion Meets Finance" event is on the horizon. This one, billed as the "government bailout edition," is taking place at the Empire Hotel January 22. For those who need a quick refresher, FMF, brought to you by Pocket Change, is the satan sister to "Speed Dating for Rich Older Women and Hot Young Men (Sugar Mamas and Boy Toys)," AKA the greatest spectator sport of all time. FMF is based on the idea that "women in fashion need men who can facilitate their pre-30 marriage/retirement plan, and men in finance need women who will allow them to leverage their career in their dating equity." I know what you're thinking, that a) this event sounds like a spiked catheter to the urethra and b) its entire premise is ruined by virtue of the fact that we live in a very different world than the first time this convention of horrific humans came out last June, and investment bankers now have an annual take home of about 30k. But the organizers are one step ahead of you, noting on the event's site, "Ladies, they still make so much more than the guys in advertising." PocketChange founder Jeremy Ableson explains below, in the audio equivalent of what the night will be like. I think we can all appreciate that this thing is Social Darwinism at work, and throw some gratitude at PC and JA for rounding all these people up into one place (not that we're suggesting anything illegal...).
