    hello to everyone,
    recently there has been anonymous rather vague meaning of the term "Vice versa"
    does anyone actually know how to use it properly?

    can you say :"demand goes up, therefore prices go up and vice versa?"
    because according to my economic textbook it is written like that. but will that sentence i gave just now be any different from the example from "she hates him and vice versa"
    can anyone give me like a logical English explanation on this please thank you.

    Your economy text book isn't really using it properly, because vice versa would imply that if prices go up, demand will go up. However, that wouldn't be correct, rather if prices go up, that would suggest that demand has gone up.

    In your example it works, "he haters her" still makes sense.
