Steven is an economist and professor of economics at the University of Chicago. He was decorated in 2003 with the John Bates Clark Medal. He is well known for his 2005 book Freakonomics, which he wrote in partnership with Stephen J. Dubner, where he uses economic theory to unmask phenomena of everyday life. A doctoral degree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Levitt's interests are far from conventional economics, as he is interested in day-to-day life and his puzzles, trying to unravel the way the world really works.
