Freakonomics.com is a financial and economics blog created by economist Steven Levitt and journalist Stephen Dubner. A spin-off of the book with the same title, Freakonomics reveals “the hidden side of everything” and explores the unintended consequences and hidden correlations of financial policies, education, health care, social issues and even sports, using statistical and behavioral economic models.

Freakonomics.com has been rated by Time magazine as one of the top-25 financial blogs because of its application of research economics to everyday, relatable life. It covers a wide range of topics from whether attending college is worth its payoff (it is) to if playing a big game at home is really an advantage in professional sports (also, yes). They explore these topics by applying economic factors and using research done all around the world. A topic they have visited a few times is the U.S. health care efficiency in organ donation. Levitt and Dubner, as well as other blog contributors, discussed the faults in the current donor system the U.S. has in place, alternative solutions and comparisons of other countries’ systems and their successes and failures. The blog posts are easy to understand, even for those who don’t have extensive knowledge of economics or the financial industry.
