Yale SOM Graduate Chad Troutwine Brings Freakonomics to the Screen
Freakonomics became a best-selling book and a powerful brand name by showing how economic thinking could illuminate everyday life. It may not have been clear to everyone how that formula could translate to the big screen, but Chad Troutwine ’02 saw reason enough to invest his own money to create a film adaptation. Troutwine, the co-founder and owner of Veritas Prep, served as a producer for the film, which was shown at the Tribeca Film Festival this year. He recently attended a screening at Yale SOM, hosted by the school's Media and Entertainment Club and Arts and Culture Club. Read a Yale Daily News report on the screening.
