About the book

Imagine you have a few billion dollars and want to spend it on the poor. How do yougo about it? Billions of government dollars, and thousands of charitable organizations and NGOs, arededicated to helping the world's poor. But much of their work is based on assumptions about the poorand the world that are untested generalizations at best, harmful misperceptions at worst.Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo have pioneered the use of randomized control trials (RCTs)in development economics through their award-winning Poverty Action Lab. They argue that byusing RCTs and, more generally, by paying careful attention to the evidence, it is possible to makeaccurate-and often startling assessments-on what really impacts the poor and what doesn't.Revelatory and impassioned, Poor Economics is a pathbreaking book that will help you to understandthe real causes of poverty and how to end it.
