Great stuff, thanks. Stossel has been on quite a roll lately, 6+ months of great columns. How long before ABC has him tarred and feathered!

Excellent - I use Stossel sometimes on my podcast...

Freakonomics would be an awful way for a layman to learn economics. The authors are interesting in the questions they ask and how they go about answering them. But the reader wouldn't grasp fundamental economic concepts like opportunity cost and trade offs. The book is more enriching to those who already know a little economics and see how far it can be stretched.
