Tim Harford:: Trial, error and the God complex I TED Talks


We don’t know what we don’t know and, even though we know that we don’t know, we STILL don’t want to know!!!

A standout lecture from Tim Harford that would benefit little from some dull introduction by me! I couldn’t help but note some words and phrases that sprang to mind as I enjoyed this video…it isn’t a complete Iist nor is it in a precise order just what I could remember! So feel free to contribute

THE BEGINNING: information – simplicity – system – interdependence –complexity – biology – survival – adaptability – empathy – iteration – fractal – scale – physics – risk – evolution – fallibility – innovation – politics – learning – statistics – correlation – transparency – assumption – uncertainty – psychological denial – mathematics – critical complexity – release* – simplification: THE END or another BEGINNING…
