Question of the day

The book SuperFreakonomics, co-authored by John Bates Clark Medal–winning economist Steven Levitt, is coming out later this month and will explore numerous interesting questions including:
Which adds more value: a pimp or a Realtor?
If the question made it into the book, you can probably guess what the answer is.

Hat tip: Marginal Revolution

Update: It appears there may be problems with the book's global cooling chapter.


  1. I guess I'll start this one off. As a REALTOR I take pride in my work and ensure my clients are protected. I have continued educating myself with designations, and continuing education. MY clients recieve the value they expect and I provide it.

  2. great sales pitch, you have successfully convinced me that you are better than a pimp!

    What other criminals are you better than?

  3. How about another question. "What adds more value - an economist, or a brick?"
