9781847395269: More Sex is Safer Sex: The Unconventional Wisdom of Economics
Quatrième de couverture :


· Misers are just as generous as philanthropists
· Avoid casual sex and increase the spread of sexually transmitted diseases
· Solve population pressures with more people
Steven Landsburg has been leading the pack of economists who are transforming their science from a drab meditation on graphs and charts into a fascinating window on human nature. Now he's back and more provocative than ever.
Why do people increase the spread of sexually transmitted disease by avoiding casual sex? Why do tall people earn more than short people? Why does it make no sense for you to give money to more than one charitable organisation? Combining the rational decisions of each of us often produces an irrational result for all of us. In More Sex is Safer Sex, Lansburg's solutions to the many ways that modern life is unfair or inefficient are jaw-dropping but defensible. Why not charge juries if a convicted felon is exonerated? And why not let firemen keep the property they rescue? In his tantalizing, entertaining narrative, Landsburg shows us how many odd behaviours have logical explanations, and many apparently logical behaviours make no sense whatsoever.
'This is classic Landsburg: original, arresting, 'obviously wrong' and actually entirely correct' Tim Harford, Financial Times columnist and author of The Undercover Economist

Présentation de l'éditeur :

With his long-running 'Everyday Economics' column in Slate and his popular book, The Armchair Economist, Steven Landsburg has been leading the pack of economists who are transforming their science from a drab meditation on graphs and charts into a fascinating window on human nature. Now he's back and more provocative than ever with surprises on virtually every page.
In More Sex is Safer Sex, Professor Landsburg offers readers a series of stimulating discussions that all flow from one unsettling fact. Combining the rational decisions of each of us often produces an irrational result for all of us. Avoiding casual sex can actually encourage the spread of diseases. To solve population pressures, we need more people. In his tantalizing, entertaining narrative, Landsburg guides us through these shocking notions by the light of compelling logic and evidence and makes suggestions along the way: Why not charge juries if a convicted felon is exonerated? Why not let firemen keep the property they rescue? As entertaining as it is inflammatory, More Sex is Safer Sex will make readers think about their decisions in unforgettable ways -- and spark debate over much that we all take for granted.
