News & Opinion: What's up at Freakonomics

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 3:21 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

Dubner and Levitt have been quite busy this week. On Monday, the NYT welcomed their blog with open arms. If you're a fan of their blog, be sure to change your RSS feed. Dubner was a guest on Wednesday's Good Morning America. Though the NY storms caused a bit of interference so you can find a text version here. Yesterday, they announced their Q&A session with Mad Money's Jim Cramer. Feel free to submit questions for Cramer to be answered later. And they invited Arthur Brooks, Tyler Cowen (another economics author), Mark Cuban, Barbara Ehrenreich and Nassim Nicholas Taleb to ponder the economics of street charity. Enjoy your Friday.
