Freakonomics : o Lado Oculto e Inesperado de Tudo Que Nos by Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J. Dubner

By Steven D. Levitt, Stephen J. Dubner

Nesse fascinante best-seller (número 1 em todas as listas nos EUA), o economista Steven Levitt e o jornalista Stephen J. Dubner estudam a rotina e os enigmas da vida actual ? da trapaça à criminalidade, dos esportes à criação dos filhos ? com conclusões que viram de cabeça para baixo o senso comum, geralmente usando dados aparentemente inofensivos e fazendo perguntas simples nunca feitas. Daí surge o novo campo de estudo apresentado neste livro: freakonomics. O que liga essas histórias é a crença de que o mundo moderno, aparentemente confuso, complicado e enganoso, não é impenetrável nem indecifrável. Na verdade, quando fazemos as perguntas certas, o mundo é ainda mais interessante do que supomos. É preciso, apenas, uma visão nova. Steven Levitt, por meio de um raciocínio incrivelmente inteligente e objetivo, mostra como é possível ver as coisas de maneira clara nessa barafunda. Os leitores vão tirar deste livro enigmas e histórias para entreter interlocutores em muitas e muitas festas, mas Freakonomics traz mais que isso: ele redefine a maneira como encaramos o mundo.
