Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Anil Swarup | 2/20/2014

    " The book brings forth research based ground reality. Amazingly well written and provides deep insight into what is wrong in our understanding of the poor. The book does not merely thrive on analyses and diagnosis alone. It even suggests some "do-able" solutions. A must read for all the policy makers an those that are ineterested in promoting the interests of the poor. "

    " A comprehensive overview of current aid trends and best practices. Lacks a prescription because the best advice is that aid policies shouldn't be universal - what works in one situation may not work in another, and thus each example needs specialized and individualized attention. "

    " J-PALers who read this, don't judge me! I'm a little ashamed that it's taken me this long to read that my bosses and colleagues put so much work into and is a core piece in what J-PAL does. But, eh! I did finish it! Superb overview of a lot of the work that is going on in development economics and clearly describes a modest and hopeful view of poverty alleviation. "
