"Which is more dangerous, a gun or a
swimming pool? What do schoolteachers
and sumo wrestlers have in common?
Why do drug dealers still live with their
moms? How much do parents really
matter? What kind of impact did Roe v.
Wade have on violent crime? These may
not sound like typical questions for an
economist to ask. But Levitt is not a
typical economist. He is a much heralded
scholar who studies the stuff and riddles
of everyday life - from cheating and crime
to sports and child rearing - and whose
conclusions regularly turn the conventional
wisdom on its head. He usually begins
with a mountain of data and a simple,
unasked question. Some of these questions
concern life-and-death issues; others have
an admittedly freakish quality. Thus the new
field of study contained in this book -
freakonomics. Through forceful storytelling
and wry insight, Levitt and co-author
Stephen J. Dubner show that economics is,
at root, the study of incentives - how people
get what they want, or need, especially when
other people want or need the same thing.
In Freakonomics, they set out to explore the
hidden side of well, everything. The inner
workings of a crack gang. The truth about
real-estate agents. The myths of campaign
finance. The telltale marks of a cheating
schoolteacher.The secrets of the Ku Klux Klan.''
