    Default Freakonomics

    I'm currently halfway through the book and it is becoming a favorite of mine. It seems Te+Si imo.

    A presentation of the Freakonomics of inner-city gangs:


    Stephen J. Dubner: Ne-INTj


    The opening 5 minutes of his "Freakonomics" lecture:

    I borrowed it and read 50 pages. Loved it but had to give it back. Doesn't beat Reagenomics though.

    Dubner looks more LIE, IMO.
    But, for a certainty, back then,
    We loved so many, yet hated so much,
    We hurt others and were hurt ourselves...

    Yet even then, we ran like the wind,
    Whilst our laughter echoed,
    Under cerulean skies...

    I read it all multiple times. I really love the book, it's awesome. I agree with your typings of the authors.

    I've read snippets here and there. My ESTp roommate absolutely loved it though. What I did read was interesting.
