A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything
About the Summary

Freakonomics offers readers the hidden facts buried within the stories they live and see dramatized every day, along with the numbers and statistics that can help them draw sense from the chaos. By justifying the use of strange questions to get at the heart of the matter, the authors show how economists turn collections of facts into unusual theories and then prove them by applying critical analysis.
