Arianna Huffington: Our culture has a way of collectively falling into the groove of conventional wisdom, whether that means seeing everything through the outdated prism of left vs. right or willfully blinding ourselves to unpleasant or inconvenient facts. So, I'm delighted that today HuffPost Business is presenting a video collaboration (freakoration?) with Stephen Dubner, co-author of Freakonomics and Super Freakonomics. Dubner brings his trademark humor, willingness to challenge conventional wisdom, and passion for starting conversations to three very different topics, and in doing so, reinforces two very important truths. First, that the forces influencing our economic life manifest themselves in many unexpected and surprising ways. And second, that conventional wisdom is often dead wrong.
