    The Pros and Cons of America’s (Extreme) Individualism (Ep. 470 Replay)

    According to a decades-long research project, the U.S. is not only the most individualistic country on earth; we’re also high on indulgence, short-term thinking, and masculinity (but low on “uncertainty avoidance,” if that makes you feel better). We look at how these traits affect our daily lives and why we couldn’t change them even if we wanted to.

    The Economist’s Guide to Parenting: 10 Years Later (Ep. 479 Replay)

    In one of the earliest Freakonomics Radio episodes, we asked a bunch of economists with young kids how they approached child-rearing.
