More or less meets Freakonomics

We invited Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner, authors of Freakonomics and Superfreakonomics, to join us in the More or Less studio for a New Year special, in which – at their request – we studied cheating in sport, the unexpected consequences of hand-washing, “drill-and-fill” dentistry, and the performance of London’s congestion charge zone.

Read more on the program website; listen online (for the next few days) or, later, find the program in our audio archive. Here is Steve Levitt’s Lunch with the FT.
