These could not sound like typical questions for an economist to ask. However Steven D. Levitt isn’t a typical economist. He research the riddles of on a regular basis life from dishonest and crime to parenting and sports activities and reaches conclusions that flip standard knowledge on its head. Freakonomics is a groundbreaking collaboration between Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning writer and journalist. They got down to discover the inside workings of a crack gang, the reality about actual property brokers, the secrets and techniques of the Ku Klux Klan, and rather more.
