A while back I posted on my web site an article "What can Liberals Learn
from Doggy Poop and Swimming Pools?", which was review of the book/blog
The authors had now released a follow-up book, SuperFreakonomics, and the
excerpt from the New York Times web site ends with this quote:
"People are people, and they respond to incentives. They can nearly always
be manipulated -- for good or ill -- if only you find the right levers."
This is something that liberals understand enough to try and weasel more
power and control for themselves, but profess a total lack of understanding
when none of their "well-intentioned" programs every work the way they had
This book looks like another must-read.
At the very least, read the excerpt.
