When mild-mannered economist Steven D. Levitt published a paper linking a rise in abortion to a drop in crime, it set off a firestorm of controversy and had both the conservatives and liberals up in arms. But Levitt has no political agenda and is the last person to be called a moralist. He is a brilliant but uncomplicated man who uses simple questions to reach startling conclusions. The Wall Street Journal has said “If Indiana Jones were an economist, he'd be Steven Levitt,” he has shown other economists just how well their tools can make sense of the real world.
Billy Beane is considered one of the most progressive and talented baseball executives in the game today. As General Manager of the Oakland A’s, Beane shattered traditional MLB beliefs that big payrolls equated more wins by implementing a statistical methodology that led one of the worst teams in baseball--with one of the lowest payrolls--to six American League West Division Titles. That strategic methodology has come to be known as the “Moneyball” philosophy,named for the bestselling book and Oscar winning film chronicling Beane’s journey from General Manager to celebrated management genius.
