A reason why "Freakonomics" is a bad title

OK, there are many reasons for this: it doesn’t really tell you what’s in the book, the methods Levitt uses in his economic analyses are not freaky, it just sounds dumb…

But this reason was a new one for me, and funny. Be sure to visit the link to see the little movie.

  1. Apparently the “onomics” market is becoming more competitive (positive profits draws …). Have you seen Stephen Shmanske’s “Golfonomics”?

  2. No, I haven’t seen this one yet. But Rob spied “Wikinomics” in the bookstore, while I read its review online, practically at the same time. Won’t be buying these (no time to read them).
