Saturday 23 March 2019
11:30AM - 12:30PM
Do you eat too much sugar? What proportion of your country are immigrants? How much tax do the rich pay?  

No matter how educated you are, The Perils of Perception suggests you are likely to be very wrong indeed. Professor of Public Policy and Director of the Policy Institute at King's College, Bobby Duffy asks how we can address our ignorance and why the populations of some countries seem better informed than others. 

David Robson is a senior journalist at BBC Future. In his book, The Intelligence Trap, he uses cutting-edge research, historical case studies, entertaining stories, and practical advice to explore the flaws in our understanding of intelligence and reveals the ways that even the brightest minds and talented organisations can backfire.

Chaired by Professor John Curtice.
