More or Less

The author and Financial Times columnist Tim Harford is the presenter of the BBC podcast More or Less, a 25-minute program about numbers and statistics.

Based on the following list of recent topics, it would seem to be of interest to Freakonomics readers:

Nassim Taleb and Paul Wilmott on a simple conceptual error that contributed to the credit crunch; the psychological bias that may be undermining a prestigious business award; and is it really true that fishing is more dangerous than boxing?




I predict you just halved the number of people who subscribe to the Freakonomics blog and don't subscribe to More or Less.


Coincidentally I just saw this BBC story and thought of Freakonomics.
