Freakonomics is a classic that changed the way we look at economic. Before it, microeconomic is a boring subject about supply and demand, but this book gave it a flavor that made everyone addicted to economic analyses to everything. This popularity is not without its reason. Freakonomic combines the brilliance of Stephen D Levitt, an economic, and Stephen J Dubner, a journalist. With them, you’d learn of all the most cutting edge academic research that sheds a light on the economical approach to social problem
This book is one of my favorite books. The author is very brilliant to show statistical data and related it with something that I had never thought of the topics covered before and questioning the organization of certain parts of society. This book takes a look at all sorts of things in society, from crack gangs to parenting, and then attempts to make sense of them by applying economic principles. It is an easy to read book and very entertaining.
I am one of economy books lover. I find them really helpful and I have picked about 10 up. According to goodreads and other sides on the internet, this is one of the best business books. I have so much interest in this book but I really have no time to read it. But I will pick this book up for sure.
