It worries me that so much of the heavily gendered distortions of modern economics, in conjunction with its methodological fetishism, is unnoticed or ignored. Economics could turn out to be the new morality and it needs to be exposed for what it really is: a male chauvinist pig of a discipline, suffering from severe monomania. In Freakonomics, its flawed methods are pointlessly applied to âeverythingâ? resulting in an agreeable, but ultimately meaningless encounter. It deserves to sell (I guess) but not to be taken so seriously.
