I have been meaning to Blog about this surprisingly free event. Every time I turn around, it seems live Microsoft Office Live Meeting is outdoing itself in free webinars. Now go and register to hear Freakonomics Authors Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner talk about their best-selling book. The event is taking place this Tuesday, July 26th.
The book is described on the Freakonomics website as:
"Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, Steven D. Levitt and co-author Stephen J. Dubner show that economics is, at root, the study of incentives - how people get what they want, or need, especially when other people want or need the same thing. In Freakonomics, they set out to explore the hidden side of ... well, everything. The inner workings of a crack gang. The truth about real-estate agents. The myths of campaign finance. The telltale marks of a cheating schoolteacher. The secrets of the Ku Klux Klan."
Yes it's strange but it offers a fascinating read.
In this free webinar, the Freakonomics guys will cover topics likes:
- Incentives are the cornerstone of modern life.
- Conventional wisdom is often wrong.
- Dramatic effects often have distant, even subtle, causes.
- What to measure, and how to measure it.
