The Logic of Life: The Rational Economics of an Irrational World
Jul 23, 2011
Good book. It's a quick read. It argues that a lot of behavior that we might figure is irrational, like aspects of racism, often turns out to be a rational response to incentives. Sometimes it's a happy surprise, like imminent no-fault divorce laws causing domestic violence to drop by one third. Sometimes it's depressing, like the rationality of some racism. But his point I think is that the more one understands what is going on, the more able one is to fix it.
