    Los prejuicios sociales afectan mas la economia que la aritmetica misma de los expertos. The scholars from Chicago and their magic math were wrong in almost everything, just take a look at the origins of the current financial crisis. German.

    An interesting point of View

    Freakonomics was a very easy book to read. Usually books about the economy are full of complex words and over the top stories. But Freakonomics is exactly the opposite. The stories are funy, and easy relatable. And they have reasonable truth to them. This point of view Levitt creates looking into our society's economy is creative and his book is one everyone should read!

    As tasty as the apple in its cover!

    Freakonomics is a very daring book that attempts to find an economic explanation for everyday riddles that it encounters. Is it true that the unexpected drop of crime during the 1990¿s is a result of better police strategies and a boost in the economic situation? Just what makes the best parenting? Did you know that the crack dealers business¿ structure is similar to that of the McDonald¿s organization? You certainly didn¿t know that teachers, and not only students, cheated? All these matters are solved by explaining how incentives play a role in these situations. The incentive for a kid to cheat is to get good grades the one for the teacher is to get a better pay. The incentive for many people to join the crack dealing lot is the promise of a shot at the tournament¿s big prize. Moreover, the book uses the economic tools that it has learned to use and uses them to shut down ¿common wisdom¿, such as the reason because crime dropped during the last ten years of our millennium. It wasn¿t any deliberate action, as a matter of fact it was an unwanted consequence of the process of legalizing abortion. Ignoring popular trends, a parent isn¿t better if it reads thousands of parenting books the driving factors for a better house education are the very personality traits that the parent possesses, something over which he or she has little to no control. These are only a couple of examples that can be found throughout the book. I believe it is a fairly easy read, but a very interesting one, that can open minds. It may not make anyone a freakonomic, always seeking for a solution that isn¿t the common one, but it will certainly make anybody a little more skeptical about the information that is given to us, and will help some other people make some better and wiser decisions about their lives.
