Freakonomics

I can't wait to get this book! Steven Levitt has the most interesting ideas out there and he's finally doing a book for the general audience. I heard him on NPR, so hopefully people pick it up in droves. There is also a website, www.freakonomics.com.

Also, Dr. Tabarrok came to BSU a few weeks back and had lunch with the econ club (turned out to be just me). He discussed a paper that he had about bounty hunters and bail, which was great because bail has been something that interests me for a while now. I read the paper, but I didn't get to see the presentation. I also cannot seem to make impressions on people. I really wanted to come off as intelligent and interesting, but I just can't bring myself to talk, especially when professors are talking. Not a good thing.

We had a pirate party last weekend. It was awesome. I cut my head with my fingernail trying to karate chop my friend and it was in the shape of an integral symbol. Coincidence? I think not.

Hey Andy! Have you gotten the book yet? I'm about half way through. Pretty good so far. What do you think about it?
