In part two of his The Adapt Lectures, the author, radio presenter and newspaper columnist, Tim Harford, looks at the lessons we can learn from the financial crisis and how the collapse of Lehman Brothers has close parallels in disasters such as Three Mile Island and Deepwater Horizon. The Adapt Lectures are a week-long series of events beginning Monday 6th June based on Tim Harford's Adapt: How Success Always Starts With Failure. From tackling the problems of climate change and global debt to creating a platform for the businesses of the future, each talk in The Adapt Lectures will focus on a different specialist area and will be hosted by a different venue.
