    (Photo: Tesla Motors) Until recently, tiny Norway (population 5 million) has been the second largest market for Teslas (after the U.S.). Earlier this year, Tesla’s Model S became the best-selling car in the country ever for a one-month period. Not bad for a luxury electric vehicle whose base price in Norway is over $100,000. What’s behind this Tesla boom? That’s the question we try to answer in this episode of Freakonomics Radio.

DUBNER: Hey podcast listeners. The episode you’re about to hear is called “Fixing the World, Bang-for-the-Buck Edition.” In it, you’ll hear how a bunch of economists have teamed up to measure the ROI, or return on investment, for the development goals set by the United Nations.

This isn’t a hypothetical. In September 2015, the United Nations will set its Post-2015 Development Goals,  continuation of the Millennium Development Goals it set in 2000. But with every interest group imaginable (and then some) scrambling for a slice of the  aid pie, how do you decide which goals are the most worthy? That’s the question addressed by this week’s episode. It’s called…
