Freakonomics

The con­tro­ver­sial the­o­ry link­ing Roe v. Wade to a mas­sive crime drop is back in the spot­light as sev­er­al states intro­duce abor­tion restric­tions. Steve Levitt and John Dono­hue dis­cuss their orig­i­nal research, the chal­lenges to its legit­i­ma­cy, and their updat­ed analy­sis. Also: what this means for abor­tion pol­i­cy, crime pol­i­cy, and hav­ing intel­li­gent con­ver­sa­tions about con­tentious topics.
