Тим Харфорд в TED


Докато чета книгата на Тим Харфорд - Adapt: Why Success Always Starts with Failure, в интернет се появи и запис от неговото гостуване в TED този месец. Тим Харфорд е икономист, автор на няколко книги (The Undercover Economist) и колумнист в Financial Times.

Участието му в TED резюмира накратко идеята на последната му книга, а именно:

 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—improvise rather than plan, work from the bottom up rather than the top down, and take baby steps rather than great leaps forward. Drawing from research across disciplines—psychology, evolutionary biology, anthropology, physics, mathematics, political science, and economics—and interviews with some of the world’s most pioneering leaders, thinkers, and strategists, Harford reveals hard-won lessons learned in the field and the importance of adaptive, trial-and-error processes in tackling issues such as fostering innovation, climate change, poverty, the financial crises, and conflict.
