Freakonomics Posts Bill James’s Answers

Freakonomics has posted Bill James’s answers to reader questions. He even answered my question.

Q: Is sabermetrics the Freakonomic analysis of baseball?

A: There are parallels. What I do was heavily influenced by the University of Chicago economists of the 1960’s. I think Freakonomics comes from the same tradition.

Cool, so we can trace the origins of sabermetrics to the Chicago school of economics.
