Economist Tim Harford studies complex systems and finds a surprising link among the successful ones: they were all created through trial and error. In this TEDTalk, Harford discusses the drawbacks of the God Complex - a syndrome common among doctors and other professionals in which they believe that no matter how complicated the problem, they alone have one, infallible solution. Harford asks us to embrace the art of making mistakes. Harford's column, "The Undercover Economist," appears in the Financial Times.
