Everything we know about solving the world’s problems is wrong.
In this groundbreaking new book, Tim Harford shows how the world’s most complex and important problems – including terrorism, climate change, poverty, innovation and the financial crisis – can only be solved from the bottom up by rapid experimenting and adapting. From a spaceport in the Mojave Desert to the street battles of Iraq, from a blazing offshore drilling rig to everyday decisions in our business and personal lives, this is a handbook for surviving – and prospering in our complex and ever-shifting world.
Tim Harford is the author of the bestselling The Undercover Economist and has won awards both for his Financial Times columns and BBC Radio show ‘More or Less’.
