Steven D. Levitt
"Steven Levitt put forth surprising explanations for the reduction in crime in New York city in the 1990s, and he made the compelling arguments to back them up. The content of his talk was fascinating and his presentation was dynamic."

"We would like to thank you for recommending Steve Levitt as a speaker. He was fantastic! He captured the audience and spoke about relevant yet off-the-beaten path topics. He was quite a draw. We hope to work with your agency in the near future."
"Steven Levitt was great! I could tell the students were very excited to have him on campus. The tickets for the event sold out very quickly and there was a long line at the door with students that didn't get tickets in time. Overall the show was a huge success. The students were very pleased to have him on campus and I think that he was much funnier than many of the comedians that we have previously brought in. Thanks for helping us with this event. It was a blast and throughly enjoyed by many students."
"We received numerous compliments about your remarks from our attendees, well over 500 participants.

Thanks again for contributing to a great experience for our Conference participants."

"[Levitt's and Dubner's] presentation was a big hit with our audience. They were able to deepen our insight into why people do what they do - with wonderful humor and engaging style. Both Mr. Dubner and Mr. Levitt were also a pleasure to work with, and we appreciated the time they spent talking to our participants and meeting with our media representatives."
“We very much enjoyed Levitt and Dubner's presentation. Our attendees gave very enthusiastic feedback and it was a great end to our day long conference. Our end of the day attendee retention was the best it has ever been, as everyone wanted to stay for the Freakonomics presentation.”
-Buck Consultants, An ACS Company

“Steve Levitt was a hit! The feedback from the attendees was he was “as advertised”
, which is to say great. People thought Steve was engaging and a nice break of thought-provoking levity relative to the serious finance we were trying to dive into the rest of the day. All in all, a wonderful job!” -AQR Capital Management
“Steve was a gem for our audience. He’s charismatic, perceptive, humorous, down-to-earth, and very smart. He was mobbed after his talk and was exceptionally gracious…We highly recommend him to any group. His topics are relevant, easily relatable (I would describe them as the human interest side of economics), and insightful. A perennial favorite for us!”
"The event went well. Steven was very accommodating, stayed throughout the entire event, chatted with people before and after."
