I am Steven Levitt, author of Freakonomics. Ask me anything!
I’m Steve Levitt, University of Chicago economics professor and author of Freakonomics.
Steve Levitt here, and I’ll be answering as many questions as I can starting at noon EST for about an hour. I already answered one favorite reddit question—click here to find out why I’d rather fight one horse-sized duck than 100 duck-sized horses.
You should ask me anything, but I’m hoping we get the chance to talk about my latest pet project, FreakonomicsExperiments.com. Nearly 10,000 people have flipped coins on major life decisions—such as quitting their jobs, breaking up with their boyfriends, and even getting tattoos—over the past month. Maybe after you finish asking me about my life and work here, you’ll head over to the site to ask a question about yourself.

Update: Thanks everyone! I finally ran out of gas. I had a lot of fun. Drive safely. :)
