Freakonomics at the University of Utah

Stephen J. Dubner, co-author of Freakonomics with Steven D. Levitt, will be speaking on Wednesday, April 9, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. in the Olpin Union Ballroom. We will be there with books available for purchase and Mr. Dubner will be signing copies of the book after his lecture. This is a great opportunity to get a signed copy of a book that has spent months on the bestseller lists.

Freakonomics is economics like you've never seen it before. Economics doesn't have to be boring, it doesn't have to be about crunching financial numbers either. Freakonomics is about the everyday, about questioning the mysteries of life all around us. 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? How did the legalization of abortion affect the rate of violent crime?

A fascinating book that will make you see the world around you in a totally different way.
