One of the most important decisions we may ever need to make is whether to continue investing time and money in a decision that is not turning out as expected. This lecture explores what drives us to persist despite poor odds and how, as a result, we can end up 'throwing good money after bad'. Helga Drummond is Professor of Decision Sciences at the University of Liverpool Management School. Her latest book, How to be a Successful Entrepreneur, is published by Kogan Page.
