If you think economics is just about money, you're in for a shock. Look at society through an economist's lens, and you'll begin to understand why conventional wisdom may not be so wise after all.

Why do seemingly trustworthy people lie? Why do drug dealers behave like they do? How much effect does a child's upbringing have on their adult life? We think we know the answers to questions like these, confident that the common assumptions explain everything. Unfortunately we couldn't be more wrong, and economist Steven D. Levitt and writer Stephen J. Dubner are here to show you why. In Freakonomics, you'll find your commonly held beliefs challenged in a blur of evidence, culture and wit, showing the economic side of the world you live in.

You will learn:

· How the right incentives can turn the most honest, upright person into a cheater

· Whether or not a child's name affects their future successes

· How having more information leads to having more control.
