I got a copy of Freakonomics. I’m so smitten with this book that by the time I got to page 120, I was sad that there were only 60 pages left. It’s the most interesting, well-written book I’ve gotten my hands on in a long time.

“Morality, it could be argued, represents the way that people would like the world to work – whereas economics represents how it actually does work.”
Freakonomics – A Rogue Enonomist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything

In a time of fear and hysteria – theory based on numbers is so comforting.

Read the book and then we can all talk about it.

    I do want to read that.

    Morality: how (some) want the world to work.

    Economics: the study of how economists think the world works, without consideration of values beyond supply and demand or anything important to the individual human.

    This is not about Freakonomics but about my peevishness towards Mr. Greenspan and everyone at AEI and Cato.

    Do you ever come to New Orleans? I’d like to see your act.
