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.… (mais)

A great, fun romp through economics and social science. It is very accessible, but includes notes of you want to go deeper. It's a very quick read, and honestly perfect for a plane ride or other trip.

It's very akin in tone and style to their podcast, which is also very enjoyable.

If you're looking for hard data, this isn't it, but if you're looking for some fun thought and insight about things that may have crossed your mind here and there, it's worth picking up. ( )

interesting material..... not really a book... just this guys ideas and theories on why things are the way they are.... not really much of a deep read, more like a series of articles mushed together in a book... ( )

Interesting but dry as hell.

These guys are very smart and they need to make sure you know it. ( )

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. ( )

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.

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.
adicionada por Shortride | editarTime, 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.
