Tim Harford has been described as the “Malcolm Gladwell of Britain.” His refreshing approach to economics and how it can be used to solve everyday problems has won him a loyal following as an author, speaker and writer of the “Undercover Economist” column for the Financial Times.

In his recent book, Adapt: Why Success Always Starts With Failure, Harford presents a novel approach to problem-solving.
