Abstract

Book Reviews physiognomy? Two complications arise — first, who would be sufficiently ugly to be protected by this law, and second, would the protected actually want the protection? Would pride or fairness win? Hamermesh believes that there is general agreement on looks, and the specific details could be worked out. He also believes that, stigma aside, plaintiffs would be willing to come out of the woodwork if the monetary gains were great enough. Any new policy will come down to what is immutable, who is deserving of protection and how to balance the many groups who need to be protected. Beauty Pays, written by a prominent labor economist, shows the reader why beauty can rightly be under the purview of economists. Beauty has a substantial effect on earnings, occupational choice and choice of partner, but ultimately it is just one of many factors influencing success. As Hamermesh writes in his conclusion, “Looks are fate; but so are many other things” [p. 180].
