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 economist to ask. Freakonomics is a ground-breaking collaboration between Levitt and Stephen J. 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. 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.

First published in the U.S. in 2005, Freakonomics went on to sell more than 4 million copies around the world, in 35 languages. Paid Surveys at Home - This has been such a great way for me to earn extra money.

Spain - Early Retirement & Financial Independence Community

The spouse and I just got back from a 4 week vacation to Spain and Morocco.* We hopped a military Space-A flight so airfare was free, and once there we used a combination of rental car (for one week) and trains to explore the southern part of the country - Seville, Cordoba, Granada, plus smaller towns and villages.* We also enjoyed a 5 day side trip to Morocco and a week in Madrid where my mother-in-law joined us for part of the time. Previously Spain was not high on my "must see" list, but the Andalusia region is absolutely gorgeous and had exactly the right mix of historical stuff, good food, and natural attractions (beaches and hiking trails) to meet my criteria for a great destination.* It compared favorably with our trip to Italy 2 years ago and was quite a bit cheaper.* We had no problem finding charming hotels that offered doubles w/attached bath at around 40 Euros/night.* Eating out was also generally a good deal, and the wine was both good and cheap.
