Retrieval Failure can occur for at least four reasons. Interference Theory which states that we forget not because memories are lost from storage but because other information gets in the way of what we want to remember. Decay Theory states that when something new is learned, a neurochemical memory trace is formed, but over time this chemical trail tends to disintegrate; the term for the phenomenon of memories fading with the passage of time is transience. Motivated forgetting, which occurs when people want to forget something is common when a memory becomes painful or anxiety laden, as in the case of emotional traumas such as rape and physical abuse. Amnesia the physiologically based loss of memory; can be anterograde, affecting the retention of new information or events; retrograde, affecting memories of the past but not new events; or both.

list for success failur associated with attribution theory

When an experiment contradicts the outcome predicted by a theory, the theory is said to be a failure. The experiment itself, if poorly designed or conducted, may not achieve a result to distinguish between expected outcomes, in which case the experiment would be a failure. Even negative results in science have meaning. Failure generally leads to greater insight than does success, as flaws is theory reveal the need for improved theories.

Retrieval is the ability to search for and locate information that has been stored.

This is a matter of opinion (as is the idea that laissez faire theory has failed); in my view, its failure was the assumption that markets are free (i.e., that they comprise fully informed buyers and sellers with no individual control over supply or demand).
