Review on Freakonomics and How it Makes Anyone Suddenly Interested in Economics!

By Alex Trem Platinum Quality Author

So at my local library I saw a copy of Freakonomics (EconomiCs)in the "best seller" area.(Economics) After a bit of a internal debate I decided to pick it up and boy was I surprised.(Economics) This book was really good! While economics can often be told as a boring subject with graphs and numbers decorating a big board the book mainly emphasizes the motivation behind human action. Many people enjoy saying that humans are only motivated by greed and selfishness and Freakonomics does a good job of showing how this motivation might affect us in our day to day lives. Without spoiling some results the book describes and proves with a lot of detail certain interesting questions such as what do school teachers and sumo wrestlers have in common?
