Love and credit scores
Leave it to economists at the Fed to stir the statistics and find that those with higher credit scores make better mates, and that a dark cloud hangs over pairings between those with disparate scores. And again, a fun title: Credit Scores and Committed Relationships (pdf).
It doesn’t require a Philip K. Dick to imagine the dystopian society that results once credit scores serve as some kind of uber social gauge. One need only look at modern China, where one’s credit score is adjusted for political activities as well as financial ones, and feeds into everything from car rental to travel permits.
