Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner are back with a followup to Freakonomics. SUPERFreakonomics, like the first volume, is full of stories that are not your traditional economic stories - nor are they boring, like our often-made assumption about economics.
While some (many) will disagree with their assumptions (or the assumptions of people in the stories), and especially issues around climate change, the key point Levitt and Dubner make is, we have to think outside the box, let's be creative, let's be sure we are looking at data with eyes that see and not simply through the lens of all our preconceptions.
Sounds like the healthy perspective of a few pastors, theologians and churches.
It's a quick, fun, thought-provoking read.
