Summary
Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, this book shows 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. The authors 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. What unites all these stories is a belief that the modern world, despite a surfeit of obfuscation, complication, and downright deceit, is not impenetrable, is not unknowable, and-;if the right questions are asked-;is even more intriguing than we think. All it takes is a new way of looking. The author shows how to see through all the clutter. -- Publisher details
