About this title

Synopsis:

When faced with complex problems, we have all become accustomed to looking to our leaders to set out a plan of action, to blaze a path to success. In this groundbreaking work, Tim Harford shows us a new and inspiring approach to solving the most pressing problems in our lives. Harford argues that today's challenges simply cannot be tackled with ready-made solutions and expert opinions; the world has become far too unpredictable and profoundly complex. Instead, we must adapt. Deftly weaving together psychology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, physics, and economics, along with compelling stories of hard-won lessons learned in the field, Harford makes a passionate case for the importance of adaptive trial-and-error in tackling issues such as climate change, poverty, and the financial crisis.

About the Author:

TIM HARFORD is the Undercover Economist and Dear Economist columnist for the Financial Times. His writing has also appeared in Esquire, Forbes, New York, Wired, The Washington Post, and The New York Times. His previous books include The Undercover Economist and The Logic of Life.
