I was recently in an airport when I purchased a copy of the NY times best seller “Freakonomics”. This book was written by economist Steven D. Levitt and journalist Stephen J. Dubner. Since its 2005 release it’s sold more than 4 million copies and been published in 35 languages. From Time magazine to the Washington Post this book has gotten rave reviews. The San Francisco Weekly exclaims “I can’t think of a single adult I know who wouldn’t enjoy reading it”. All this praise seems disturbing in light of the appalling thoughts expressed in its pages. Namely their proposal, that abortion could be considered “one of the greatest crime-lowering factors in American history”.
