Freakonomics (Spanish Edition)
by Levitt, Steven D, and Dubner, Stephen J

Overview -
En esta obra, Levitt y Dubner demuestran, a trav¿¿¿s de ejemplos y una sarc¿¿¿stica perspicacia, que la econom¿¿¿a representa el estudio de los incentivos.

¿¿¿Qu¿¿¿ resulta m¿¿¿s peligroso: una pistola o una piscina?

¿¿¿Qu¿¿¿ tienen en com¿¿¿n un maestro de escuela y un luchador de sumo?

¿¿¿Por qu¿¿¿ contin¿¿¿an los traficantes de drogas viviendo con sus madres?

¿¿¿En qu¿¿¿ se parecen el Ku Kux Klan a los agentes inmobiliarios?

Quiz¿¿¿s ¿¿¿stas no sean las t¿¿¿picas preguntas que se formula un experto en econom¿¿¿a, pero Steven D. Levitt y Stephen J. Dubner no son unos economistas muy t¿¿¿picos.
Se trata de especialistas que estudian la esencia y los enigmas de la vida cotidiana y cuyas conclusiones, con frecuencia, ponen patas arriba la sabidur¿¿¿a convencional.

A trav¿¿¿s de ejemplos pr¿¿¿cticos y de una sarc¿¿¿stica perspicacia, Levitt y Dubner demuestran que la econom¿¿¿a, en el fondo, representa el estudio de los incentivos: el modo en que las personas obtienen lo que desean, o necesitan, especialmente cuando otras personas desean o necesitan lo mismo.

ENGLISH 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.
