Tim Harford: Trial, error and the God complex

Tim Harford speaks brilliantly on the issue of finding solutions through trial and error, not necessarily trusting the experts (gods), but using experimentation, trial and error to solve problems. He further suggests the necessity of TEACHING this technique as an essential part of any educational program. A truly excellent talk which I recommend heartily.
