Tim Worstall dances to victory over resources scaremongerers

Economist emerges triumphant at Reg summer lecture

Reg lectures Tim Worstall brought together rare minerals, bacon and eggs, and his own interpretive victory dance in his battle to stop us all worrying about running out of resources, at our most recent Reg lecture.

In just under 50 minutes, Tim covered the economics of resources, why you won’t find a Ferrari in a scrap yard, and just what he did with the fruits of his biggest metals coup. He also gave every attendee a copy of his latest book.

You won’t get a copy of the book unless you buy it here, but you can see the whole thing in wonderful Reg vision above.

What you don’t get to see is the spikey Q&A session after the lecture, or the joy of a room full of Reg readers meeting up, sharing their opinions, and enjoying a nourishing buffet and a couple of beers.

If that sounds like your idea of a great night out you’re clearly an intelligent soul who likes to have their thoughts provoked. While our third and final summer lecture is sold out, we’ll be announcing our winter series in a couple of months, so watch this space.
