When Things Get Messy: The Productive Reactions to Destruction
Tim Harford | International Bestseller, BBC Radio Host, Economist, TED Speaker
Tim Harford has been described as ‘perhaps the best popular economics writer in the world’. He is a behavioral economist, BBC radio and TV presenter, and award-winning Financial Times columnist. Sometimes called ‘Britain’s Malcolm Gladwell’, Tim offers a distinctive blend of storytelling, humor and intelligence.
He has written nine books, including The Undercover Economist, which has sold nearly 2 million copies in over 30 languages. His BBC Radio 4 series, More or Less, offers a genial smackdown of dubious statistics, while his BBC World Service radio series Fifty Things That Made the Modern Economy was a critical success and iTunes topper. Tim’s most recent book, The Data Detective, was released this past February and his writing has won several prestigious awards, including the Bastiat Prize for economic journalism (2006 and 2016), Science and Data Commentator of the Year (2018) and more.
Tim is the only journalist to be an honorary fellow of the Royal Statistical Society, has given numerous invited lectures (including at Google) and three TED talks, which have alone been viewed nearly 10 million times.
“He’s a genius at telling stories that illuminate our world.” – Malcolm Gladwell
