In Freakonomics, because it is an Economical Non Fiction book, there is a lack of dialogue and characters. Additionally, there are few specific times and places that are described, and even mentioned. Therefore, the events that take place in society is the most important element in the book. After all, the book is essentially a cluster of occurrences that are relevant to the common topic of the chapter. These occurrences make up the backbone of the book. Without the occurrences, the book would have no context, and would just contain ramblings of some weird economist. The events provide evidence and credibility to the author.
