Dubner invites questions from readers (As of post time there are 60 questions-comments) and promises to post the answers within a week. From The Freakonomics Blog:

”When we met, Craig emphasized that Jim would be the best person to answer questions about the business side of Craigslist, and I’m delighted that Jim also agreed to participate.”

Newmark, the founder of Craigslist, has, of late, been the highly accessible ”customer service representative.” Buckmaster, as CEO, handles day-to-day managerial duties.
