Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything (P.S.)

Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool?

What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common?

How much do parents really matter?

These may not sound like typical questions for an economist to ask. But Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He studies the riddles of everyday life—from cheating and crime to parenting and sports—and reaches conclusions that turn conventional wisdom on its head.

Freakonomics is a groundbreaking collaboration between Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning author and journalist. They set out to explore the inner workings of a crack gang, the truth about real estate agents, the secrets of the Ku Klux Klan, and much more.

Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, they show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives—how people get what they want or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.

Why do you think Trump was consistently referred to as a “dictator” or “tyrant” etc by the media and others  throughout his presidency ? Despite having not taken the United States to war like many of his predecessors? 🤔 

Do you think that much of it had to do with how “tactlessly” he conducted himself or do you think that he was often targeted because he was simply nothing like all of the others, thus garnering him hate along the way ? 

Does it matter that he didn’t take the USA 🇺🇸 to war or are all or the vast majority of the wars that we engage in necessary and warranted ?👇Feel free to reply below 👇All comments are welcome 👇
