Learn to uncover the hidden side of things with economics!
We tend to see things through our morals and ideals, when everything actually operates based on economic incentives and disincentives. By looking deeply into facts, numbers and statistics, we can uncover many hidden surprises behind conventional wisdoms, and learn how our world truly works. In Freakonomics, the authors Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner ask seemingly-strange questions across a range of topics (from crime to parenting), then use data to show that that things are often not what they seem.
