Tim Harford

Economist, journalist and broadcaster.

Tim Harford, although now a famous economist, doesn’t like to think in discrete terms. He is a disruptor—someone who lives outside the box—and has made a name for himself through his famous research and writing on economic and psychological concepts. Since starting “The Undercover Economist,” a weekly column in the Financial Times in which he explains the economic concepts behind our day-to-day tasks, Harford has written ten books, spoken three times for TED, and hosted multiple podcasts.
