Freakonomics

A few months ago, I had heard an interview with the authors Freakonomics on NPR. Rox posts about their most controversial conclusion: that legalized abortion been a positive factor in curbing the crime rate.

I was a bit surprised to see this, as the first time I mentioned this research to a friend of mine, she outright dissmissed it as racist. Probably the wrong tack. on this issue. The problem is placing basic human rights into the hands utilitarian economists.
