Assume nothing, question everything. This is the message at the heart of Freakonomics, Levitt and Dubner's rule-breaking, iconoclastic book about crack dealers, cheating teachers and bizarre baby names that turned everyone's view of the world upside-down and became an international multi-million-copy-selling phenomenon. 'Prepare to be dazzled' Malcolm Gladwell 'A sensation ... you'll be stimulated, provoked and entertained. Of how many books can that be said?' Sunday Telegraph 'Has you chuckling one minute and gasping in amazement the next' Wall Street Journal 'Dazzling ... a delight' Economist 'Made me laugh out loud' Scotland on Sunday

`Als Indiana Jones econoom zou zijn, zou hij Steven Levitt heten. Freakonomics leest als een detective. Wall Street Journal Wat is gevaarlijker: een pistool of een zwembad? Wat hebben sumoworstelaars en schoolmeesters gemeen? En waarom wonen drugsdealers bij hun moeder? Het zijn vragen die je niet gauw van een econoom zou verwachten. Maar Steven Levitt is geen typische econoom. In Freakonomics onderzoekt hij met co-auteur Stephen Dubner de verborgen kant van de dingen om ons heen. De geheimen van de Klu Klux Klan, bijvoorbeeld. Of de waarheid over vastgoedmakelaars. En, stelt hij, heeft het dalen van de misdaadcijfers in plaats van met een goed draaiende economie niet eigenlijk alles te maken met de legalisering van abortus? Freakonomics is het leukste en verhelderendste boek over economie dat je je kunt voorstellen. Een mix van essentiële feiten en een meeslepende vertelling, die onze blik op de moderne wereld voorgoed verandert en verscherpt. `Een fascinerend en belangrijk boek, leesbaar, compact en barstensvol informatie over de wereld om ons heen. Wie dit boek over de raadsels van het alledaagse leven heeft gelezen moet wel concluderen: economie is belangrijk, interessant en erg leuk. de Volkskrant `Levitt stelt ongewone vragen en geeft provocatieve antwoorden. Slim, precies en tot in detail. New York Times

Wat hebben de verdwijning van paardenmest en de introductie van kabeltelevisie met elkaar te maken? Waarom is het beter om dronken achter het stuur te stappen dan te gaan lopen? In vervolg op de internationale bestseller Freakonomics, werpt SuperFreakonomics opnieuw onverwachte, verrassende en prikkelende vragen op. Steven Levitt en Stephen Dubner gaan op zoek naar de antwoorden en laten zien dat ons gedrag gestuurd wordt door economische motieven. Of het nu gaat om prostituees, zelfmoordterroristen, klimaatdeskundigen of artsen: zij worden uiteindelijk allemaal gedreven door economische prikkels. SuperFreakonomics gaat over dingen waarvan je altijd dacht dat je ze wist maar die niet waar bleken te zijn, of dingen waarvan je nooit wist dat je ze wilde weten. Dit boek onderzoekt kortom de verborgen kant van de wereld en daagt ons uit die opnieuw te definiëren.

In hun internationale megasellers Freakonomics en SuperFreakonomics toonden Levitt en Dubner aan dat alledaagse problemen vaak opgelost kunnen worden door gedrag dat tegen elke normale intuïtie indruist. In Think like a freak wordt onze gangbare wijze van denken opnieuw op zijn kop gezet en leert de lezer geleerd te denken als een freak, een zonderling, en waarom dat nuttig is. Levitt en Dubner analyseren de beslissingen die we nemen, de plannen die we maken, de moraal die we erop nahouden, en ze tonen aan dat hun inzichten kunnen worden toegepast in ons dagelijks leven, waardoor we slimmere en betere besluiten nemen. Het boek bevat een gereedschapskist met instrumenten voor beter leven en denken. Zo leren we wat de voordelen zijn van iets op te geven in plaats van door te zetten en hoe we succesvol kunnen zijn in iets waar we geen talent voor hebben.

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? 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. 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. 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. 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.
