Why Learning from Failure is the Key to Survival
Tim Harford, Edinburgh International Book Festival
This event occurred on: Sunday, 14 August 2011, 8 p.m.
As the author of the bestselling The Undercover Economist, Tim Harford knows all about successful economics. In his latest book, Adapt, he paints a broader picture. Looking at everything from street battles in Iraq and the energy crisis to everyday decisions in our personal lives, he argues that the key to survival today is the ability to experiment, improvise and learn, and above all a willingness to fail. Chaired by Ruth Wishart.
