What a great book!
Ever wondered how one can show that teachers cheat on tests (in favour of their students!)? And what link is there between Romania's Ceausescu banning abortion in 1966 and the end of his dictatorship 23 years later?
Here is a Chicago economist who answers real-world questions by using both his economics thinking and modern quantitative tool. And it is a great read partly thanks to the helping hand of a New York Times journalist.
