Tim Harford is an economist who writes about economics theories behind our daily lives in books and as a Financial Times columnist. All of his books have been sold worldwide and widely translated, namely "The Undercover Economist" that has sold one million copies. He is the also only person who runs a problem page "Dear Economist" in Financial Times in which readers' problems are answered with the thought-provoking economic ideas. Tim currently presents the BBC radio series "More or Less" and contributes regularly to other radio, TV programmes and publications. His talk in TEDxWarwick this year focuses on the similarities between the War in Iraq and the organisation's top-down management.
