"An Afternoon with Stephen Dubner"
April 6, 2009
In partnership with University College’s First Year Experience
Award-winning author, journalist, and TV personality Stephen Dubner is the co-author of the international bestsellerFreakonomics. Through forceful storytelling and wry insight, Dubner shows how economics is, at root, the study of how people get what they want, especially when other people want the same thing. Dubner spent several years at the The New York Times as an editor and writer, and has also written for The New Yorker and Time. He has written two previous bestselling books, Choosing My Religion and Confessions of a Hero-Worshipper. Dubner and economist Steven Levitt are currently working on another book, tentatively titled Superfreakonomics.
