    Inhaltsangabe

    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? How did the legalization of abortion affect the rate of violent crime?

    These may not sound like typical questions for an economist to ask. But Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He is a much-heralded scholar who studies the riddles of everyday life, from cheating and crime to sports and child-rearing, and whose conclusions turn the conventional wisdom on its head. Thus the new field of study contained in this audiobook: Freakonomics.

    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 explore the hidden side of...well, everything. The inner working of a crack gang...the truth about real-estate agents...the secrets of the Klu Klux Klan.

    What unites all these stories is a belief that the modern world is even more intriguing than we think. All it takes is a new way of looking, and Freakonomics will redefine the way we view the modern world.

    Entertaining but very tone-deaf

    I would not recommend this to friends and family.

    Sometimes the author's statements are a little tone-deaf (Parents who are late to pick up their children from kindergarten are probably playing tennis and don't want to cut their game short?? Students who don't study hard and have bad grades will 'end up working for their dad' s company'???)

    Sometimes they are straight up racist like repeating the n-word several times or innocently asking why 'black parents give their children names that might hurt their career paths'.

    There are some entertaining stories though and as an economist I enjoy reading stories containing interesting data sources and conclusions. But still- wouldn't recommend.

    just ok - unorganized content

    just to be clear, this book has nothing to see with economics. it uses basic sociology and statistical tools to analyse a series of niche, vastly uninteresting topics. at least the analysis is performed properly

    Definitely not about economy

    It is telling stories and giving data about things and try to look at data for finding the issues and what causes those related to human’s nature.
    I was hoping to hear more about economic system of todays world instead so It was not what I expected ä.
