Summary Economist Steven Levitt and writer Stephen Dubner are featured in this documentary based on their worldwide bestseller, compiled by a team of acclaimed documentarians who explore how economic principles affect many different things in life, from sumo wrestlers to the name your parents gave you. The bestselling non-fiction book Freakonomics, which examines a wide range of issues affecting our society from very unique perspectives, is the basis for this collection of short films by several talented documentary makers. Oscar winner Alex Gibney's piece, Pure Corruption, looks at the practice of sumo wrestling match fixing, while Morgan Spurlock, of Super Size Me fame, documents how the choice of a person's name can affect many aspects of their later life in A Roshanda By Any Other Name. Rachel Grady conducts an unusual experiment in Can You Bribe A 9th Grader To Succeed?, and It's Not Always A Wonderful Life, by Eugene Jarecki, explores whether a change in abortion law has led to a reduction in crime rates in America. Linking these fascinating stories are interviews with the book's authors, economist Steven Levitt and journalist and writer Stephen Dubner, who explain how the book and the concept of Freakonomics evolved.
