This is a fun read of connecting things that most people wouldn’t necessarily connect. Sort of like when abortion was legalized there was a huge drop in crime. Levitt goes on to explain lots of these abortions that took place were from a situation where the child would have grown up in a bad situation.
A quote from the book:
“If morality represents an ideal world. Economics represents the actual world.” This is the theme of the book. Levitt looks at life through his Economist glasses and likes to see the things that are, rather than how we want them to be. In the closing paragraphs he wants us the reader to try to do the same. To look at everything and question WHY.
