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 studies the stuff and riddles of everyday life--from cheating and crime to sports and child rearing--and his conclusions regularly turn the conventional wisdom on its head. The authors 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 this book, they set out to explore the hidden side of everything. If morality represents how we would like the world to work, then economics represents how it actually does work.--From publisher description.… (lisätietoja)

Interesting but dry as hell.

These guys are very smart and they need to make sure you know it. ( )
  boxofgeese | Feb 23, 2021 |
I had heard a lot about this, but I wasn't really wowed. Levitt and Dubner's "book without a unifying theme" feels really disjointed, and the inclusion of the selected Freakonomics New York Times columns at the back of the book only highlights this. That said, there is some interesting stuff going on here -- I've had a growing fascination with the economics of the drug trade, and the chapter on that here is very interesting. Reasonably good light reading, but don't expect to have your mind blown. ( )

Super interesting and really kind of refreshing.
In the past few years I have looked at a lot of studies that have been controversial. When I discovered how they were set up, who they collected the data from and how they drew conclusions I was shocked at how poorly these studies were done. They were correlative at best (and that is a stretch when you look at how they got the data) and nothing about them could be considered causative.

It made me wish these guys just sat around and refuted all the crazy stuff people deliver to us in their nice, agenda filled packages. Even if you don't morally agree with some of the conclusions the facts showed (and I didn't) it is still nice to have the actual facts without a political agenda. ( )

A fun book where I learned about a bunch of useless information such as cheating habits of teachers and sumo wrestlers, impact of a name, and fascinating overview of a crack dealing gang in Chicago (and many other examples).

Now, that's not to say that I didn't get anything useful out of the book, because I did. This book teaches the reader to think critically regarding data, correlations, causations, and consider many other factors that might affect the data. ( )

"If morality represents how people would like the world to work, then economics shows how it actually does work."

"We associate truth with convenience, with what most closely accords with self-interest and personal well-being or promises best to avoid awkward effort or unwelcome dislocation of life. We also find highly acceptable what contributes most to self-esteem...economics and social behavior are complex, and to comprehend their character is mentally tiring. Therefore we adhere, as though to a raft, to those ideas which represent our understanding." --John Kenneth Galbraith, Economist & coiner of the phrase "conventional wisdom."

"Prepared to be dazzled." says Malcolm Gladwell of Freakonomics. Ironic since the only stunningly interesting material in this entire book is the chapter on crime which refutes a major thesis of his own book, The Tipping Point. Since most of you have read The Tipping Point, I might as well expound. The so called "Broken Windows Effect" is lumped in with several other "innovative policing strategies" and proven to be completely negligible in its effect on crime. What has proven to be effective in fighting crime? Abortion. He proves the case irrefutably through a series of case studies on various countries that adopted abortion and through the states in the Union which adopted the practice at various times. However there is a twist to this story--that I will let you discover on your own, should you wish to read Freakonomics. ( )

Economists can seem a little arrogant at times. They have a set of techniques and habits of thought that they regard as more ''rigorous'' than those of other social scientists. When they are successful -- one thinks of Amartya Sen's important work on the causes of famines, or Gary Becker's theory of marriage and rational behavior -- the result gets called economics. It might appear presumptuous of Steven Levitt to see himself as an all-purpose intellectual detective, fit to take on whatever puzzle of human behavior grabs his fancy. But on the evidence of ''Freakonomics,'' the presumption is earned.
 
lisäsi Shortride | muokkaaThe Economist (maksullinen sivusto) (May 12, 2005)
 
The book, unfortunately titled Freakonomics, is broken into six chapters, each posing a different social question. Levitt and Dubner answer them using empirical research and statistical analysis. And unlike academics who usually address these matters, they don't clutter the prose with a lot of caveats. They just show you the goods.
lisäsi Shortride | muokkaaTime, Amanda Ripley (Apr 24, 2005)
 
Freakonomics is about unconventional wisdom, using the raw data of economics in imaginative ways to ask clever and diverting questions. Levitt even redefines his definition. If, as he says, economics is essentially about incentives and how people realise them, then economics is a prospecting tool, not a laboratory microscope.
