The Guardien, June 6, 2011Duflo and Banerjee tell these stories of their randomised control trials in a lovely new book called Poor Economics As they admit, randomistas cannot answer some big questions how to tackle food prices, for instance But through lots of microstudies, they make a subtle case for one big argument aid really can help poor people, provided the money follows the evidence Vancouver Sun, June 11, 2011 Fast Company, June 15, 2011Fascinating and captivating Their work reads like a version of Freakonomics for the poor There are insights into fighting global poverty from the remarkable and vital perspective of those whom we profess to serveThey remind us, I think, of our shared humanity and how at some fundamental levels we really do think alike IndianExpress.com, June 18, 2011This is a welcome shift in methodology as it implicitly concedes the need to combine social science with hard economics Outlook India, June 25, 2011It vividly, sensitively and rigorously brings alive the dilemmas of the poor as economic agents in a variety of contexts, whether as consumers or risk takers There are splendid chapters on a variety of topics that affect the poor food, health, education, savings, micro credit, insurance, risk and even some cursory observations on political behaviour DNA Daily News Analysis , India, September 24, 2011The

actually made out to be Hindustan Times, September 24, 2011 A remarkably noses on the ground book Livemint.com October 4, 2011There is no better place to solve the problem than the place where the problem is One of the better economics books this year, Poor Economics, is by Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo who found economic solutions to problems by being in India, Indonesia, Kenya, etc James Pressley, BloombergAn enlightening look at what randomized control trials, such as those used to assess new medicines, tell us about the behavior of impoverished people and how to help them The Massachusetts Institute of Technology economists describe the rational motivations that underpin irrational decisions We meet, for example, Moroccan villagers who find money to buy televisions, DVD players and cell phones when they cant afford enough food Gayle Tzemach Lemmon, PRIs Marketplace The New York Times, May 19, 2011 Randomized trials are the hottest thing in the fight against poverty, and two excellent new books have just come out by leaders in the field One is Poor Economics, by Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo These terrific books move the debate to the crucial question What kind of aid works best The Guardian, May 18, 2011 Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo s book, Poor Economics A Radical Rethinking of the Way to Fight Global Poverty, is making waves in development circles Beyond the strong focus on randomised control trials, the book distinguishes itself by wading into issues on which the development community has often ignored or made uninformed guesses These include the rationale behind the decisions made by the poor, whether they make the best decisions available, and how policymakers should respond Matthew Yglesias, May 7, 2011This new book by Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo eschews the ideology of both the right and the left, and focuses on what measurable evidence has to say about the often conflicting myths that dominate discussion of international development The book is unusual, perhaps unique, in that the authors took a lot of time to talk to poor people about what they think and what they want.They have a compelling argument that antipoverty programs can be effective if properly designed, and illustrate ways to test them to make sure they actually work The writing style is accessible and engaging, but its not dumbed down or over simplified The complexity of the subject means that this book is taking me longer to read than other books, but Ive found the effort genuinely rewarding Kirkus Review, April 15, 2011Highly decorated economists Banerjee and Duflo Economics Massachusetts Institute of Technology relay 15 years of research into a smart, engaging investigation of global povertyand why we re failing to eliminate itA refreshingly clear, well structured argument against the standard approach to poverty, this book, while intended for academics and those working on the ground, should provide an essential wake up call for any reader The Guardian, April 11, 2011 Banerjee and Duflo offer a refreshingly original take on development, and they are very aware of how they are bringing an entirely new perspective into a subject dominated by big polemics from the likes of Jeffrey Sachs and William Easterly they are clearly very clever economists and are doing a grand job to enrich their discipline s grasp of complex issues of poverty so often misunderstood by people who have never been poor The Economist, April 22, 2011In an engrossing new book they draw on some intrepid research and a store of personal anecdotes to illuminate the lives of the 865m people who, at the last count, live on less than 0.99 a day The Economists Free Exchange Blog, April 21, 2011Let me recommend it Poor Economics is than just a compendium of the randomistas greatest hits For one thing, it contains some well observed reporting The Economists Free Exchange, April 21, 2011TO CUT to the chase this is the best book about the lives of the poor that I have read for a very, very long time The research is wide ranging Much of it is new Above all, Banerjee and Duflo take the poorest billion people as they find them There is no wishful thinking The attitude is straightforward and honest, occasionally painfully so And some of the conclusions are surprising, even disconcerting Forbes.com, April 25, 2011a compelling and important read an honest and readable account about the poor that stands a chance of actually yielding results Philanthropy Action, April 25, 2011Banerjee and Duflo write exceptionally well, and given that there are two of them, the voice is surprisingly singular But the real surprise in this book is its humility Both the authors and the material they pull from are truly formidable, yet Banerjee and Duflo are not really out to make a hard pitch, least of all to die hard Big Idealists who disagree with them As such, there is nothing directly confrontational about Poor Economics They are peeling the onion, not hacking it to pieces.Winner of the 2011 Financial Times Goldman Sachs Best Business Book of the Year AwardBillions of government dollars, and thousands of charitable organizations and NGOs, are dedicated to helping the world s poor But much of their work is based on assumptions that are untested generalizations at best, harmful misperceptions at worst.Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo have pioneered the use of randomized control trials in development economics Work based on these principles, supervised by the Poverty Action Lab, is being carried out in dozens of countries Drawing on this and their 15 years of research from Chile to India, Kenya to Indonesia, they have identified wholly new aspects of the behavior of poor people, their needs, and the way that aid or financial investment can affect their lives Their work defies certain presumptions that microfinance is a cure all, that schooling equals learning, that poverty at the level of 99 cents a day is just a extreme version of the experience any of us have when our income falls uncomfortably low.This important book illuminates how the poor live, and offers all of us an opportunity to
