Professor of Psychology William Sanderson was interviewed for the NPR feature “Working In While Eating Out: The Evolution of Doing Business While Dining.”

The article discusses why the business lunch (or meeting over coffee or dinner) is actually a centuries-old tradition. Dr. Sanderson discusses how dining can also be used to impress and show status and success.

He says, “For example, ordering an expensive bottle of wine at a restaurant demonstrates wealth/success, which may be important in business relationships and dating.”
