Chicagoist Wishes Steven Levitt a Happy Birthday
Today is University of Chicago professor and renowned economist Steven Levitt's birthday. His 2005 book Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything used the principles of economics to explain things in life other than money. The bestseller answers questions like "Why do drug dealers still live with their moms?" and "What effect does the name you give your child have on their life?"
