Rochester Professor Uses Economic Theory to Encourage "More Sex"
April 17, 2007

Author of The Armchair Economist, Fair Play, and his most recent book More Sex is Safer Sex: The Unconventional Wisdom of Economics, Steven Landsburg is a lively commentator on economic issues who appears frequently in national popular publications. He currently pens a monthly column on "everyday economics" for Slate magazine, exploring such diverse subjects as the national debt, the obesity crisis, payments to Hurricane Katrina evacuees in New Orleans, and salary caps in the NFL. In his scholarly work, Landsburg has focused on algebraic K-theory, quantum game theory, module patching, the philosophy of science, and moral philosophy. He has written two economics textbooks and is currently working on a text on general relativity and cosmology.
