There will be a screening of Freakonomics The Movie (2010) in the Motley on Friday, March 30th, 2012. Freakonomics is collection of documentaries that explores the hidden side of human nature through the use of the science of economics. It examines how people react to opportunities to gain, wittingly or otherwise. The subjects include the possible role a person’s name has for their success in life, why there is so much cheating in an honor bound sport like sumo wrestling, what helped reduce crime in the USA in the 1990s onward and we follow an school experiment to see if cash prizes can encourage struggling students to improve academically.
