    Economics can explain everything, from why people behave the way they do to how governments and businesses organize themselves. As the blockbuster best-seller Freakonomics demonstrated, economics can explain everything - from why people behave the way they do to how governments and businesses organize themselves. But are the basic assumptions and conclusions in Freakonomics true? Does the free market usually lead to unintended and negative consequences?

    Gerald says: "Repetitive conservative arguments"
    "Lott versus Levitt"
    Overall

    Most of this book is a rejoinder to Freakonomics; in that, it is probably a success. It's rather hard to tell if Lott is motivated by animus for the material in Levitt's volume on Lott, rather than the desire to illuminate the topic; however, the result is another interesting volume on economics and how they apply to the masses. I suggest it as a libertarian companion to the socialist Freakonomics.
