Have you seen this man ?

……or, more importantly, do you recognize him ? If you do, you could pocket a cool 100 bucks – only if you go up to him and say hi.

Steven Levitt, economist extraordinaire and author of Freakonomics has devised this social experiment to determine if he is an easily recognizable celebrity or not. I really don’t stand a chance (to get the money) – neither will I be in Chicago or Levitt be making a trip down to Chapel Hill anytime soon. Plus, I am bad at faces. I searched up his images on Google, and he looks a little different in every one of them.

Wonder what happens if a local TV station gets wind of this and publicizes the offer on TV ?
