I agree with Zelizer's argument in this book, that economics plays a part in all intimate relationships without totally defining those relationships. However, I felt that she covers these issues just as well and more succinctly in Economic Lives.

Some neighbors are total strangers, others not. But the moment the net is cast so wide as to take in strangers, then the connections she is trying to draw between intimacy and money lose all their meaning. Can one possibly imagine an intimate?
At this point, it is better to ask how social arrangements differ from confidential ones, and how both differ from intimate relationships. The term "intimacy" is asked to do too much work.

Consider Zelizer's discussion of the professional rules of conduct for psychiatrists. Sure, confidential information goes from patient to physician. But is this relationship intimate, given the utter lack of reciprocity of disclosure? The therapist does not bare his soul to his patient, and indeed has been instructed to keep all personal affairs to one side.
The explicit prohibition against any form of sexual connection, moreover, is meant to prevent intimacy, not encourage it. And so it goes. Zelizer's many sage observations about a wide range of social relationships work at cross-purposes with her central thesis. Instead of showing how people purchase intimacy, we often learn how they purchase lots of different things. In Zelizer's hands, alas, the purchase of intimacy ceases to be a paradox and becomes a misnomer.
