“An evening with Tim Harford”

…sounds like the world’s worst date, but in fact I’ll be talking about my book “The Undercover Economist Strikes Back”, which I hope will be a lot more fun.

It’s on 24 April, 6.30pm in central London – full details here.

Prospect Magazine is organising and I am afraid there is a ticket price, but it’s a small venue and there will be drinks laid on. Come along if you like that sort of thing!

If you don’t fancy paying money, here’s a FREE video of me speaking about “How to Prevent Financial Meltdowns”.
