Movie Screening: Freakonomics

Posted on Updated on

Wednesday 15th February at 6pm till 8pm in NK03 New Kings.

We are happy to announce our second movie screening this semester. Freakonomics is a movie which tries to explain the field of economics and discovers that it studies more than simply economies or businesses, it can also help explore human behavior and how it reacts to incentives.

Economist Steven D. Levitt and journalist Stephen J. Dubner host an anthology of documentaries that examines how people react to opportunities to gain, wittingly or otherwise. The subjects include the possible role a person’s name has for their success in life, why there is so much cheating in an honor bound sport like sumo wrestling, what helped reduce crime in the USA in the 1990s onward and we follow a school experiment to see if cash prizes can encourage struggling students to improve academically.

Snacks and drinks will be provided.
We are looking forward seeing all of you and invite you to stay for interesting discussions after the movie.
