Lies, Damned Lies and Statistics - Watch on Home

Venue: Online

From 20 September 2021 9:00 am

to 24 September 2021 11:00 pm

SUSAN WARD MEMORIAL TALK

In the midst of Covid confusion and panic, Tim Harford, presenter of Radio 4’s More or Less, has been the calm voice interpreting statistics and government claims so that we can see situations clearly and for what they are. He is the author of nine books including How To Make The World Add Up, Messy, and the million-selling The Undercover Economist. He is a senior columnist at the Financial Times, the presenter of Fifty Things That Made the Modern Economy, and the podcast Cautionary Tales. Tim has spoken at TED, PopTech and the Sydney Opera House. He is an associate member of Nuffield College, Oxford and an honorary fellow of the Royal Statistical Society. Awarded an OBE for services to improving economic understanding, he’ll frame why statistics can rule our lives and even government decisions, and why sometimes they shouldn’t.

Susan Ward founded the Festival in 2009.
