Michael Perelman points is to "a delightful slam" at Steven Levitt’s hit book Freakonomics. by Ariel Rubinstein, who is himself an economist who has done prominent research about bargaining. I enjoyed Freakonomics, but Rubinstein gives it a very sharp poke with a stick, and he puts his finger on a number of things that I had vaguely disliked about the book, as well as much else. It’s a short entertaining read.
