A Venti Drip w/Freakonomics, Anyone?

I am in the middle of a Cape Cod vacation with my family, so I haven’t been to a Starbucks lately. But I’ve been told that Starbucks is now featuring a coffee cup with a Freakonomics quote on it, which goes something like this: “Morality describes the way that any of us would like the world to work. Economics describes the way the world actually does work. You can’t change the world you live in until you understand it.” Personally, I have never taken note of the quotes on Starbucks cups, and I’ve drunk at least a few hundred cups of their coffee. I guess now I’ll have to start paying more attention.
