Which is more dangerous, a gun or a swimming pool? What do schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers have in common? Why do drug dealers still live with their moms? How much do parents really matter? How did the legalization of abortion affect the rate of violent crime? These may not sound like typical questions for an econo-mist to ask. But Steven D. Levitt is not a typical economist. He is a much-heralded scholar who studies the riddles of everyday life—from cheating and crime to sports and child-rearing—and whose conclusions turn conventional wisdom on its head. Freakonomics is a groundbreaking collaboration between Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner, an award-winning author and journalist. They usually begin with a mountain of data and a simple question. Some of these questions concern life-and-death issues; others have an admittedly freakish quality. Thus the new field of study contained in this book: freakonomics. Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, Levitt and Dubner 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. In Freakonomics, they explore the hidden side of . . . well, everything. The inner workings of a crack gang. The truth about real-estate agents. The myths of campaign finance. The telltale marks of a cheating schoolteacher. The secrets of the Klu Klux Klan. What unites all these stories is a belief that the modern world, despite a great deal of complexity and downright deceit, is not impenetrable, is not unknowable, and—if the right questions are asked—is even more intriguing than we think. All it takes is a new way of looking. Freakonomics establishes this unconventional premise: If morality represents how we would like the world to work, then economics represents how it actually does work. It is true that readers of this book will be armed with enough riddles and stories to last a thousand cocktail parties. But Freakonomics can provide more than that. It will literally redefine the way we view the modern world. Bonus material added to the revised and expanded 2006 edition The original New York Times Magazine article about Steven D. Levitt by Stephen J. Dubner, which led to the creation of this book. Seven “Freakonomics” columns written for the New York Times Magazine, published between August 2005 and April 2006. Selected entries from the Freakonomics blog, posted between April 2005 and May 2006 at http://www.freakonomics.com/blog/.

Die Nummer 1 aus den USA! Immer schon hat Edgar eine besonders enge Beziehung zu den Hunden gehabt, die seine Eltern auf ihrer Farm züchten. Nun ist er auf die Hilfe der Tiere angewiesen, als er eines Tages gezwungen ist, zu fliehen – vor seinem finsteren Onkel Claude. Edgar ist überzeugt davon, dass Claude seinen Vater ermordet hat ... Eine mitreißende Familiengeschichte und ein Abenteuerroman, der den dramatischen Kampf eines Jungen ums Überleben in der Wildnis vor einer atemberaubenden Landschaftskulisse schildert. Edgar wächst auf einer abgelegenen Farm in Wisconsin auf, wo seine Eltern Gar und Trudy eine Hundezucht betreiben. Den hochsensiblen 14-Jährigen, der stumm zur Welt kam, verbindet eine enge Freundschaft mit den Tieren; die Hündin Almondine, seine treueste Kameradin, versteht sogar seine Zeichensprache. Eines Tages jedoch hat der Frieden ein Ende: Edgars Onkel Claude taucht auf und gerät wegen Erbstreitigkeiten mit Gar aneinander. Kurz darauf kommt Gar auf mysteriöse Weise ums Leben. Edgar ist überzeugt, dass Claude seinen Vater umgebracht hat, und flieht – nur begleitet von drei jungen Hunden, mit deren Hilfe er lernen muss, in der Wildnis zu überleben. »Die Geschichte des Edgar Sawtelle« ist ein kluger, lebenspraller Roman über die großen Themen der Literatur: Rache und Schuld, Brudermord und Vaterverlust, Liebe und Hass. Ein zeitloses Epos und eine wahrlich unvergessliche Geschichte über die besondere Freundschaft zwischen einem Jungen und seinem Hund.
