Review: Freakonomics

This isn’t going to be a true review. This IS however a HUGE recommendation for their podcast this week. I listened to it this morning on my walk and… I might have freaked out another walked coming towards me at one point when I did the double-hands “yes, that!” gesture. I looked up a little further right after I did it and the guy was moving off the sidewalk already….

So yeah. Go and listen. It is a fabulous take on how we can and possibly should look at saving the rainforest. I think my favorite quote was something like “Brazil’s strategy was a lot of sticks, but not a lot of carrots” which made me all the more excited to see how we could add more sticks to the solution.

Writer, nerd, and perpetual student. I am obsessed with books - both the reading and the making of them. If I won the lottery I would try to have the best private(ish) library in the world. It wouldn't be totally private because the whole purpose of having books is helping other people find a book they will love. I have 2 cats, Genkii (energy) and Kawaii (cutie). I will mention them regularly because they are a daily delight in my life. Granted, sometimes when I'm playing video games they are not so much "delight" as they are "distraction"... but I love them regardless.
