Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, Levitt and co-author 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. Freakonomics establishes this unconventional premise: If morality represents how we would like the world to work, then economics represents how it actually does work.
