By Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J. Dubner

Which is extra risky, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in universal? Why do drug buyers nonetheless stay with their mothers? How a lot do mom and dad really count? How did the legalization of abortion impact the speed of violent crime?

These won't sound like usual questions for an econo-mist to invite. yet Steven D. Levitt isn't really a customary economist. he's a much-heralded student who reports the riddles of daily life—from dishonest and crime to activities and child-rearing—and whose conclusions flip traditional knowledge on its head.

Freakonomics is a groundbreaking collaboration among Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning writer and journalist. and so they commence with a mountain of information and an easy query. a few of these questions situation life-and-death concerns; others have an admittedly freakish caliber. therefore the hot box of analysis contained during this publication: freakonomics.

In Freakonomics, they discover the hidden facet of . . . good, every little thing. the interior workings of a crack gang. the reality approximately real-estate brokers. The myths of crusade finance.

All it takes is a brand new approach of taking a look.

Freakonomics establishes this unconventional premise: If morality represents how we want the area to paintings, then economics represents the way it truly does paintings. it really is real that readers of this ebook can be armed with adequate riddles and tales to final one thousand cocktail events. yet Freakonomics grants greater than that. it is going to actually redefine the way in which we view the trendy world.
