See the world differently

by Ryan on 5/24/2012

This book is a good primer to economics for those who may not be interested in economics. The authors show the reader that economics doesn't necessarily rely on money, but explains how and why people do things in other economic terms. From sumo wrestlers, to teachers, to drug dealers, Freakenomics explains how the world really works to people who are curious to know. For a more in depth and serious look at one of the subjects covered, I'd also recommend Off The Books, dealing with the study of a Chicago project and how the poor deal with meeting their needs. Regardless, this is a swift read covering many economic topics not covered by money. The sequal was equally as interesting.
