Freakonomics Rev Ed: by Levitt & Dubner

Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything

Freakonomics is a breakthrough by a collaboration of Levitt &  Dubner, award winning author and journalist, are not traditional economist but a scholar. 

The original book which published the idea for the first time was an instant best seller and by 2011 about four million copy was sold and a popular column in New York Times Magazine was published by the authors.

A study starts with a mountain of row data such as death rate, mortality rate or others admitted through a freakish quality, thus a study of life economics grow up named as Freakonomics. 

Levitt & Dubner shows the hidden side of traditional economics, that is why people want, why they need something, when other people want or need the same thing. All the hidden objects of economics is opened here through life study with a freakish question analysis.

Freakonomics provide a new measurement of morality. According to Levitt – “Morality, it could be argued, represents the way that people would like the world to work, wheareas economics represents how it actually does work.” Here Levitt has connected morality with economics.

“As we suggested near the beginning of this book, if morality represents an ideal world, then economics represents the actual world.” – Levitt again proved that he is a scholar and finally he established a bridge between morality and economics at all by this quote.

Actually what a reader can find out from this book study, Freakonomics book can provide more than this. This is an unlimited opportunity to think what kind of modern world we want. It’s a new way of thinking, new qualification of measurement of morality and so on.   


Bonus materials are added to the revised and expanded version of Freakonomics.

Finally I want to close this article with a favorite quote of Levitt and that is “Information is the currency of the Internet” – This quote is a freakish choice from my side to close the article.
