Levitt isn't really a customary economist. He reviews the riddles of lifestyle from dishonest and crime to parenting and activities and reaches conclusions that flip traditional knowledge on its head. Freakonomics is a groundbreaking collaboration among Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award profitable writer and journalist. They got down to discover the internal workings of a crack gang, the reality approximately genuine property brokers, the secrets and techniques of the Ku Klux Klan, and masses extra. via forceful storytelling and wry perception, they convey that economics is, at root, the research of incentives how humans get what they need or desire, particularly whilst folks wish or want an identical thing."
