Description


La continuacion del fenomeno "Freakonomics," con mas de 4 millones de copias vendidas
La economia trata sobre la inflacion, los tipos de interes y la bolsa. "Superfreakonomics" habla de prostitutas, traficantes de droga y luchadores de sumo fracasados. Han sido cuatro anos buscando no solo las preguntas mas dificiles, sino las mas sorprendentes: Es mas peligroso conducir borracho o caminar borracho? Por que se receta la quimioterapia tan a menudo si es tan poco eficaz? Puede un cambio de sexo elevar tu salario?
"Superfreakonomics" desafia nuestra manera de pensar, y explora el lado oculto de las cosas con preguntas como:
En que se parece una prostituta al Papa Noel de unos grandes almacenes?
Por que los medicos se lavan tan poco las manos?
Provoco la television un incremento del crimen?
Cuan utiles son los cinturones de seguridad?
Podemos salvar el planeta comiendo canguro?
Levitt y Dubner combinan una gran inteligencia con la capacidad para contar historias mejor que nadie, ya sea a la hora de buscar una solucion al calentamiento global o explicar por que el precio del sexo oral ha caido de manera tan radical. Al analizar como la gente responde a los incentivos, muestran el mundo tal cual es: bueno, malo, feo, y finalmente, superfreaky.
