About Steven Levitt
Steven Levitt is a tenured professor in the University of Chicago's economics department, an award-winning economist and amongst many other books, is the co-author of the New York Times bestseller Freakonomics. The book instantly became a cultural phenomenon, spent more than eight years on world-renowned bestseller lists, and sold more than seven million copies around the world.
Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, Levitt shows how economics is, at root, the study of incentives. That is, how people get what they want, or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing. He sifts through a pile of data to find a story that no one else has found and devises ways to measure an effect that veteran economists have declared un-measurable.
The Wall Street Journal has said “If Indiana Jones were an economist, he'd be Steven Levitt”.
