In their books "Freakanomics"and "Superfreakanomics," Stephen D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dubner explore the "hidden side of everything," with stories about cheating schoolteachers, self-dealing real-estate agents, and crack selling mamma's boys. The Freakanomics Radio Podcast, hosted by Dubner, carried on that tradition with weekly podcasts. Prepare to be enlightened, engaged, perhaps enraged, and definitely surprised.

Alliance News is a new company with an old mission: to report on companies, markets and economics for UK investors and their advisers at the same pace as finance itself operates.
We will uncover news and check facts while there is still money to be made.
There is a lot of business news around, but much of it is of little use at the point of trade. It may be too late. Too long to read when time is short. Or flat out wrong. It also tends to be about the same well-known companies over and over again.
Our Management Team brings well over 50 years of financial news and technology experience to bear on the problem. We've experienced firsthand what works and what doesn't.
Our reporters and editors will focus on speed and accuracy.
We are new but aim to build a reputation for reliability. We will cover smaller UK companies that make better investments than newspaper headlines, while not neglecting the big FTSE100 stocks or the wider global economy.
We also know that if you can't find a story, or didn't see it because there was too much headline clutter, it may as well not have been written. Sensible content tagging - including identifying the primary company mentioned in a news story - is central to our Editorial Policy.
Our London Newsroom is here to serve the financial community. Please Contact us and let us know what you think.
Alliance News cannot change the face to global financial media just yet, but we are going to see what we can do for the leading financial market in Europe.
