Book Description :

Avec Freakonomics, leur premier livre (Folio actuel numéro 132), Levitt et Dubner ont transformé notre regard sur le monde en appliquant les méthodes de l'économie aux petites bizarreries de la vie quotidienne. SuperFreakonomics aborde une nouvelle série de questions aussi insolites les unes que les autres. La méthode économique n'est ici ni une simple discipline universitaire ni une stricte explication mathématique de l'"économie", mais un instrument dont il faut se servir pour décrire comment nous prenons des décisions : c'est le mariage de la méthode économique et de la curiosité iconoclaste. Finalement, il ressort de toutes ces démonstrations une redoutable évidence : les êtres humains, que l'économie traite en sujets rationnels et calculateurs, ne font qu'obéir aux incitations.

Book Description :

Steven Levitt, the original rogue economist, and Stephen Dubner have spent four years uncovering the hidden side of even more controversial subjects, from terrorism to shark attacks, cable TV to hurricanes. The result is Superfreakonomics. It reveals, among other things: - Why you are more likely to be killed walking drunk than driving drunk - How a prostitute is more likely to sleep with a policeman than be arrested by one - Why terrorists might be easier to track down than you would imagine - How a sex change could boost your salary Because sometimes the most superfreaky solution is the simplest.

Book Description :

Avec Freakonomics, leur premier livre, Steven Levitt et Stephen Dubner ont transformé notre regard sur le monde moderne en appliquant les méthodes de l'économie aux petites bizarreries de la vie quotidienne. Quatre ans après ce succès mondial, SuperFreakonomics aborde une nouvelle série de questions aussi insolites les unes que les autres. Pour Steven Levitt et Stephen Dubner, la méthode économique n'est ni une simple discipline universitaire ni une stricte explication mathématique de l'" économie " mais un instrument dont il faut se servir pour décrire comment nous prenons des décisions. Voilà ce qu'est la freakonomics, le mariage de la méthode économique et d'une curiosité iconoclaste. Une analyse serrée des chiffres ainsi qu'une certaine ouverture d'esprit leur permettent de montrer que bien des idées ne sont que des idées reçues... Dans SuperFreakonomics, la finesse d'analyse de Steven Levitt se mêle au talent de Stephen Dubner pour expliquer, entre autres, la chute spectaculaire des tarifs des prostituées dans les quartiers chauds de Chicago ou comment s'y prendre pour refroidir la planète. En démontrant que, finalement, les êtres humains ne font qu'obéir aux incitations, ils nous dévoilent le monde tel qu'il est réellement : beau, hostile, dégoûtant et, par-dessus tout, super freaky.

Book Description :

SuperFreakonomics was an instant New York Times bestseller that caused a media uproar, continuing the amazing success begun with the groundbreaking, worldwide sensation Freakonomics. SuperFreakonomics challenges the way we think all over again, exploring the hidden side of everything with such questions as: How is a street prostitute like a department-store Santa? Why are doctors so bad at washing their hands? How much good do car seats do? What’s the best way to catch a terrorist? Did TV cause a rise in crime? What do hurricanes, heart attacks, and highway deaths have in common? Are people hard-wired for altruism or selfishness? Can eating kangaroo save the planet? Which adds more value: a pimp or a Realtor? Freakonomics has been imitated many times over -- but only now, with SuperFreakonomics, has it met its match.

Book Description :

The Freakonomics books have come to stand for challenging conventional wisdom; using data rather than emotion to answer questions. Now Levitt and Dubner have turned what they've learned into a readable and practical toolkit for thinking smarter, harder, and different - thinking, that is, like a Freak. Think Like a Freak offers rules like 'Put Your Moral Compass in Your Pocket,' 'The Upside of Quitting,' 'Just Because You're Great at Something Doesn't Mean You're Good at Everything,' and 'If You Have No Talent, Follow Levitt's Path to Success.' Praise for Freakonomics 'A phenomenon.' Observer 'Non-stop fun.' Evening Standard 'Brilliant . . . you'll be stimulated, provoked and entertained. Of how many books can that be said?' Sunday Telegraph 'Dazzling . . . a delight.' The Economist Praise for Superfreakonomics 'Page-turning, politically incorrect and ever-so-slightly intoxicating, like a large swig of tequila.' The Times 'You are guaranteed a good time.' Financial Times 'Mind-blowing.' Wall Street Journal 'Travels further than its predecessor . . . Levitt is a master at drawing counter-intuitive conclusions.' Sunday Times

Book Description :

Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common? How much do parents really matter? These may not sound like typical questions for an economist to ask. But Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He studies the riddles of everyday life-from cheating and crime to parenting and sports-and reaches conclusions that turn conventional wisdom on its head. Freakonomics is a groundbreaking collaboration between Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning author and journalist. They set out to explore the inner workings of a crack gang, the truth about real estate agents, the secrets of the Ku Klux Klan, and much more. Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, they show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives-how people get what they want or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing.

The legendary bestseller that made millions look at the world in a radically different way returns in a new edition, now including an exclusive discussion between the authors and bestselling professor of psychology Angela Duckworth. Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? Which should be feared more: snakes or french fries? Why do sumo wrestlers cheat? In this groundbreaking book, leading economist Steven Levitt--Professor of Economics at the University of Chicago and winner of the American Economic Association's John Bates Clark medal for the economist under 40 who has made the greatest contribution to the discipline--reveals that the answers. Joined by acclaimed author and podcast host Stephen J. Dubner, Levitt presents a brilliant--and brilliantly entertaining--account of how incentives of the most hidden sort drive behavior in ways that turn conventional wisdom on its head.

Book Description :

From the rule-breaking authors of international bestsellers Freakonomics and Superfreakonomics, this is the ultimate guide to how to Think Like a Freak The Freakonomics books have come to stand for something: challenging conventional wisdom; using data rather than emotion to answer questions; and learning to unravel the world's secret codes. Now Levitt and Dubner have gathered up what they have learned and turned it into a readable and practical toolkit for thinking differently - thinking, that is, like a Freak. Whether you are interested in the best way to improve your odds in penalty kicks, or in major global reforms, here is a blueprint for an entirely new way to solve problems. Along the way, you'll learn how the techniques of a Japanese hot-dog-eating champion can help you, the reason an Australian doctor swallowed a batch of dangerous bacteria, why Nigerian e-mail scammers make a point of saying they're from Nigeria, and why Van Halen's demanding tour contract banning brown M&Ms was really a safety measure. You'll learn why sometimes it's best to put away your moral compass, and smarter to think like a child. You will be given a master class in incentives-because for better or worse, incentives rule our world. And you will learn to quit before you fail, because you can't solve tomorrow's problem if you aren't willing to abandon today's dud. Levitt and Dubner see the world like no one else. Now you can too. Never before have such iconoclastic thinkers been so revealing - and so much fun to read.

Book Description :

Mesmerizing & fascinating. . . The Seattle Post–Intelligencer The Freakonomics of big data. Stein Kretsinger, founding executive of Advertising.com ∗∗∗Winner of the Nonfiction Book and Small Business Book Awards∗∗∗ ∗∗Used in courses at more than 30 universities∗∗ ∗Translated into 9 languages∗ An introduction for everyone In this rich, fascinating surprisingly accessible introduction, leading expert Eric Siegel reveals how predictive analytics works, and how it affects everyone every day. Rather than a how to for hands–on techies, the book serves lay readers and experts alike by covering new case studies and the latest state–of–the–art techniques. Prediction is booming. It reinvents industries and runs the world. Companies, governments, law enforcement, hospitals, and universities are seizing upon the power. These institutions predict whether you′re going to click, buy, lie, or die. Why? For good reason: predicting human behavior combats risk, boosts sales, fortifies healthcare, streamlines manufacturing, conquers spam, optimizes social networks, toughens crime fighting, and wins elections. How? Prediction is powered by the world′s most potent, flourishing unnatural resource: data. Accumulated in large part as the by–product of routine tasks, data is the unsalted, flavorless residue deposited en masse as organizations churn away. Surprise! This heap of refuse is a gold mine. Big data embodies an extraordinary wealth of experience from which to learn. Predictive analytics unleashes the power of data. With this technology, the computer literally learns from data how to predict the future behavior of individuals. Perfect prediction is not possible, but putting odds on the future drives millions of decisions more effectively, determining whom to call, mail, investigate, incarcerate, set up on a date, or medicate. In this lucid, captivating introduction now in its Revised and Updated edition former Columbia University professor and Predictive Analytics World founder Eric Siegel reveals the power and perils of prediction: What type of mortgage risk Chase Bank predicted before the recession Predicting which people will drop out of school, cancel a subscription, or get divorced before they even know it themselves Why early retirement predicts a shorter life expectancy and vegetarians miss fewer flights Five reasons why organizations predict death including one health insurance company How U.S. Bank and Obama for America calculated and Hillary for America 2016 plans to calculate the way to most strongly persuade each individual Why the NSA wants all your data: machine learning supercomputers to fight terrorism How IBM′s Watson computer used predictive modeling to answer questions and beat the human champs on TV′s Jeopardy! How companies ascertain untold, private truths how Target figures out you′re pregnant and Hewlett–Packard deduces you′re about to quit your job How judges and parole boards rely on crime–predicting computers to decide how long convicts remain in prison 183 examples from Airbnb, the BBC, Citibank, ConEd, Facebook, Ford, Google, the IRS, LinkedIn, Match.com, MTV, Netflix, PayPal, Pfizer, Spotify, Uber, UPS, Wikipedia, and more How does predictive analytics work? This jam–packed book satisfies by demystifying the intriguing science under the hood. For future hands–on practitioners pursuing a career in the field, it sets a strong foundation, delivers the prerequisite knowledge, and whets your appetite for more. A truly omnipresent science, predictive analytics constantly affects our daily lives. Whether you are a consumer of it or consumed by it get a handle on the power of Predictive Analytics.

In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the landmark book Freakonomics comes this curated collection from the most readable economics blog in the universe. It’s the perfect solution for the millions of readers who love all things Freakonomics. Surprising and erudite, eloquent and witty, When to Rob a Bank demonstrates the brilliance that has made the Freakonomics guys an international sensation, with more than 7 million books sold in 40 languages, and 150 million downloads of their Freakonomics Radio podcast. When Freakonomics was first published, the authors started a blog—and they’ve kept it up. The writing is more casual, more personal, even more outlandish than in their books. In When to Rob a Bank, they ask a host of typically off-center questions: Why don’t flight attendants get tipped? If you were a terrorist, how would you attack? And why does KFC always run out of fried chicken? Over the past decade, Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner have published more than 8,000 blog posts on Freakonomics.com. Many of them, they freely admit, were rubbish. But now they’ve gone through and picked the best of the best. You’ll discover what people lie about, and why; the best way to cut gun deaths; why it might be time for a sex tax; and, yes, when to rob a bank. (Short answer: never; the ROI is terrible.) You’ll also learn a great deal about Levitt and Dubner’s own quirks and passions, from gambling and golf to backgammon and the abolition of the penny.
