Freakanomics is more common than you think

Recommended reading for anyone who votes and compulsory reading for anyone we vote for. Actions and consequences, why is it so? Follow the money, follow the incentive and the answer will be there and sometimes the reverse of what was expected or intended.

No meat in the sandwich

Love the intro and eager to read the case studies, but half of them did not download.

Great book!

Really enjoyed reading this, informative as much as it is entertaining, a winning combination!!
