Monkey Business

Economics was never my bag, but maybe that's because ECON 101 was never as sexy or as relevant as Freakonomics. Finally, someone has put two and two together and found the answer to: How does econ relate to my life? From tracking the monkeys who use currency (even for sex) to figuing out the puzzle of the million missing women, Steven Leavitt and Stephen Dubner are infusing fun into the subject and making me rethink statistics.

Homework assignment: Check out the Freakonomics blog.
