Levitt I liked this book than I expected I would like it and liked it than their previous effort – but have given it less stars this time than the last one The reason for this is that their last book introduced me to the whole field of behavioural economics and one is always fond of books that introduce entire new fieldsI had some real problems with some of the contents of this book – or rather not the contents so much as the underlying philos

Microeconomics Ever since I read the first Freakonomics book years ago I became a super freak and LOVED the real world expose on things we always seem to take for grantedIncentives work Period They work to control our behavior than anything else Prostitution was huge years ago because it paid very well compared to any other kind of work that a woman could do Often ten times the going rate of anything Cops turned a blind eye because they could partake of the services Those other really moral people who tried to stop it found they couldn t because they didn t understand the full circumstances So what reduced prostitution Higher wages for women in general Choice It was never a matter of morality It was a matter of going where the money isIf we compare a geophysical engineering event such as setting off a volcano to combat global warming it would cost a lot LESS than Al Gore s whole PR campaign that tried to browbeat everyone into altruism And it would be effectiveThe threat of terrorism is often much effective than actual terrorism So put away your bomb and just do some talking about it Microeconomics uses real data is only as effective as the uestions being posed but is still extremely interesting And enlighteningCar seats for kids No statistical difference in saving kids lives versus seat belts The seat belts are the real saviors So instead of having this huge weird industry with mismatching standards for car seats why don t we have cars with easily adjustable seatbeltsHELLOThe numbers don t lie But human psychology is FULL of blind spots Like doctors and washing hands To find out that one hospital s doctors only washed their hands 9% of the time they OUGHT to have been washing their hands proven by swabs and analysis of their hands versus their self reporting of 60% or so Or the other many excuses such as time and effort No incentive fixed that situation better than putting screensavers up on all the computers that showed a magnification of a single caught doctor s hand What kind of truly effective incentives do we need to roll out now with the Coronavirus Will washing hands truly make the grade Maybe we should all get a picture of the virus for our screensavers But will that take care of all the people who don t WANT to take it seriously Those people who will prolong the problem for everyone else by spreading it to their friends and neighbors and to their own family members all of whom might be trying very carefully to uarantine themselvesMaybe we need a shame bell The same shame bell that was so yeah in Game of Thrones

characters SuperFreakonomics Global Cooling Patriotic Prostitutes and Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance Free read SuperFreakonomics Global Cooling Patriotic Prostitutes and Why Suicide Bombers Should Buy Life Insurance ↠ E-book, or Kindle E-pub The New York Times best selling Freakonomics was a worldwide sensation selling over four million copies in thirty five languages and changing the way we look at the world Now Steven D Levitt and Stephen J Dubner return with SuperFreakonomics and fans and newcomers alike will find that the freakuel is even bolder funnier and surprising than the firstFour years in the making SuperFreakonomics asks not only the tough uestions but the unexpected ones What's dangerous driving drunk or walking drunk Why is chemother. Mostly of the same as Freakonomics with riffs on Malcolm Gladwell s books thrown in The glaring difference is the chapter on climate change which attempts to go waaay beyond the author s expertise in behavioral economics and contains unfortunate misrepresentations of climate science For a detailed critiue I d recommend Still there s no denying that convincing the public to recognize the need to curb CO2 emissions is an almost impossible task Also there s a laughable line about how Congress undid the repeal of the estate tax for 2010 Apparently the authors had a deadline to meet and tried to predict that the Senate would behave rationally All in all I m starting to think that behavioral economics is better at explaining after the fact than predicting

Ugh pop culture trash masuerading as economics in turn masuerading as hard scienceThere were so many glaring flaws in the authors assumptions logic and conclusions that within just the introduction they had already lost all credibilityRight up front the authors declare that fears about global warming are overblown because the issue will likely be solved by technological innovation and then offer as proof the fact that cars eliminated the problems caused by horse based transportation So you know don t worry everyone we re sure to have a solution to global warming with even larger negative externalities any day now That s not even taking into account subtle problems with the we always innovate our way out of problems argument like survivorship bias or the assumption that human ingenuity is unbounded or the assumption that we ll recognize pending catastrophes in time to act or the assumption that global changes will be politically acceptable on a global level or the complete disregard for loss of life while waiting for the technological solution etcI uickly concluded that this book wasn t worth the effort to finish
