This blows me away. If monkeys can be taught to use an exchange medium... Hey, wait a minute. All of a sudden I feel like a lab monkey.

heh heh, yeah, i saw this article in the sunday magazine. i'm really looking forward to their regular column. i saw their book in the store recently and that led me to their website. i'm probably going to buy the book at some point, but i think i'll wait for the paperback. they seem to be riding the same wave that malcolm gladwell is on. /andrew

then we could pit 40 of these monkeys against 40 midgets. winner gets a bunch of little coins with holes in them, and access to a bunch of monkey hookers.

"they seem to be riding the same wave that malcolm gladwell is on." I think of it more along the lines of Krugman, in that it tries to explain complex economic behavior (or maybe not what most peple thing of as being economic behavior) in simple language.  Steven Levitt is a PhD economist (MIT) who was awarded tenure and promoted to full professor within three years of joining the faculty at Chicago.  He is also the 2003 recipient of the John Bates Clark medal, given to the most promising young economist every other year.  Quite a number of past winners went on to win Nobel Prizes.  He's simply really brilliant. I have yet to read more than some exerpts from the book and the NYTimes mag column, but I think I may start using Freakonomics in my intro microecon classes.   bob

the only reason i used the gladwell reference is because they're using his blurb to sell the book. i'm also guessing their readership closely parallels that of gladwell's. although i'm sure they catch a lot more economists in their net than M.G. does. /andrew
