LIVESTREAM: How to make the world add up

When was the last time you read a grand statement, accompanied by a large number, and wondered whether it could really be true? ​​​​​​​In this talk, Tim Harford will draw on his experience as both an economist and presenter of the BBC's radio show 'More or Less' to take us deep into the world of disinformation and obfuscation, bad research and misplaced motivation to find those priceless jewels of data and analysis that make communicating with numbers worthwhile.
