News & Opinion: Steven Levitt and Stephen Colbert

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 4:18 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Monday night Steven Levitt was a guest on the Colbert Report. Colbert joked that he had bought Freakonomics but read Blink beforehand so only read it to get a "vague impression" of its subject. They then went on to chatting about names and how it affects a person's life. They concluded that while sharing the same first name, Stephen's name is ultimately better because his parents used the smart spelling.
