I am Stephen Dubner, co-author of Freakonomics. Ask me anything!
My short bio: I'm mostly a writer, of the non-fiction sort. Best known for the "Freakonomics" books, all co-authored with my friend Steve Levitt. I also host Freakonomics Radio — and, as of this week, a new podcast, Question of the Day, with my friend James Altucher. I tend to write about things that interest me rather than things that a lot of people necessarily care about; occasionally, those two intersect. Since the new podcast is about asking and answering questions, I figured another AMA was in order. So, reddit, ask me anything!
Hi all -- looks like I've answered all your questions, will sign off now. Thanks for having me!
PS: Hi, I'm back to answer some more q's that have since come in. Thnx, SJD
Okay, now I'm really leaving (4pm ET), thanks to all
