Read online SuperFreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prostitutes And Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC SuperFreakonomics: Global Cooling, Patriotic Prostitutes And Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance The New York Times best selling Freakonomics was a worldwide sensation selling over four million copies in thirty five languages and changing the way we look at the world Now Steven D Levitt and Stephen J Dubner return with SuperFreakonomics and fans and newcomers alike will find that the freakquel is even bolder funnier and more surprising than the first .

Four years in the making SuperFreakonomics asks not only the tough questions but the unexpected ones What s more dangerous driving drunk or walking drunk Why is chemotherapy prescribed so often if it s so ineffective Can a sex change boost your salary .

SuperFreakonomics challenges the way we think all over again exploring the hidden side of everything with such questions as .

How is a street prostitute like a department store Santa Why are doctors so bad at washing their hands How much good do car seats do What s the best way to catch a terrorist Did TV cause a rise in crime What do hurricanes heart attacks and highway deaths have in common Are people hard wired for altruism or selfishness Can eating kangaroo save the planet Which adds more value a pimp or a Realtor .

Levitt and Dubner mix smart thinking and great storytelling like no one else whether investigating a solution to global warming or explaining why the price of oral sex has fallen so drastically By examining how people respond to incentives they show the world for what it really is good bad ugly and in the final analysis super freaky .

Freakonomics has been imitated many times over but only now with SuperFreakonomics has it met its match by Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J. Dubner

No description available, No description available, In celebration of the th anniversary of the landmark book Freakonomics comes this curated collection from the most readable economics blog in the universe It s the perfect solution for the millions of readers who love all things Freakonomics Surprising and erudite eloquent and witty When to Rob a Bank demonstrates the brilliance that has made the Freakonomics guys an international sensation with more than million books sold in languages and million downloads of their Freakonomics Radio podcast br br When Freakonomics was first published the authors started a blog and they ve kept it up The writing is more casual more personal even more outlandish than in their books In When to Rob a Bank they ask a host of typically off center questions Why don t flight attendants get tipped If you were a terrorist how would you attack And why does KFC always run out of fried chicken br br Over the past decade Steven D Levitt and Stephen J Dubner have published more than blog posts on Freakonomics com Many of them they freely admit were rubbish But now they ve gone through and picked the best of the best You ll discover what people lie about and why the best way to cut gun deaths why it might be time for a sex tax and yes when to rob a bank Short answer never the ROI is terrible You ll also learn a great deal about Levitt and Dubner s own quirks and passions from gambling and golf to backgammon and the abolition of the penny br br Steven D Levitt a professor of economics at the University of Chicago was awarded the John Bates Clark medal given to the most influential American economist under forty He is also a founder of The Greatest Good which applies Freakonomics style thinking to business and philanthropy br br Stephen J Dubner is an award winning author journalist and radio and TV personality He quit his first career as an almost rock star to become a writer He has since taught English at Columbia worked for The New York Times and published three non Freakonomics books, 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 Freakonomics will literally redefine the way we view the modern world br br 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 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 br br 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 br br What unites all these stories is a belief that the modern world despite a surfeit of obfuscation complication and downright deceit is not impenetrable is not unknowable and if the right questions are asked is even more intriguing than we think All it takes is a new way of looking Steven Levitt through devilishly clever and clear eyed thinking shows how to see through all the clutter br br Freakonomics establishes this unconventional premise If morality represents how we would like the world to work then economics represents how it actually does work It is true that readers of this book will be armed with enough riddles and stories to last a thousand cocktail parties But Freakonomics can provide more than that It will literally redefine the way we view the modern world
