In the second part of a three-part public program series on the global economy, economist and author Steven Levitt will tackle a host of issues at the very center of modern society: terrorism, global warming, altruism, and more. From the rarefied corridors of academia to the grimiest street corners, Levitt lets his numbers speak the truth, asserting that a single mountain in the Philippines has had a greater impact on global warming than Nobel laureate Al Gore, while questioning common notions, such as the idea that terrorists come from poor families and are poorly educated. Inspired by engineers and astrophysicists, realtors and pimps, amateur historians and transgender neuroscientists, Levitt will examine the complex and often surprising nature of human behavior-delving into the hidden agendas of nearly every individual and the incentives that drive them.
