As sort of a final semester wrap-up, this week you should read Chapter 4 of Freakonomics and the journal article that inspired part of it: The Impact of Legalized Abortion on Crime by Donohue and Levitt.
On Moodle, find the articles entitled LevittAbortion.pdf and LevittAbortionCritique.pdf. Read both of them, in that order. What did you find surprising? How do you reconcile the chapter in Freakonomics and the two papers. Limit your response to 600 words.
There will be no comments on this post, but you have two weeks to work on it. It is due on Friday, May 3 at 9am.
It’s the last one, make it a good one.
