Plenary: Tim Harford on The Art of Adapting

Tim Harford, The Undercover Economist

“If at first you don’t succeed, try again.” We’re so often told to learn from our mistakes that it’s become a cliché. But why is it so hard – and how can we do a better job? Tim sets out four key obstacles to adapting - and explains how to overcome them. With stories and ideas from psychology and behavioral economics – as well as aviation, ballet and even a TV game show – Tim describes the subtle art of adapting.
