Steven Landsburg’s writings are living proof that economics need not be “the dismal science.” Readers of The Armchair Economist and his columns in Slate magazine know that he can make economics not only fun but fascinating, as he searches for the reasons behind the odd facts we face in our daily lives.

In this Social Sciences Forum lecture on his book More Sex Is Safer Sex, Professor Landsburg (University of Rochester) brings his witty and razor-sharp analysis to the many ways that our individually rational decisions can combine into some truly weird collective results — and he proposes hilarious and serious ways to fix just about everything.
