Descripción del producto


By the winners of the 2019 Nobel Prize in Economics

Winner of the Financial Times/ Goldman Sachs Best Business Book of the Year

"A compelling and important read... An honest and readable account about the poor that stands a chance of actually yielding results."--Forbes.com

"A marvellously insightful book by two outstanding researchers on the real nature of poverty."--Amartya Sen

"A remarkable work: incisive, scientific, compelling and very accessible, a must-read for advocates and opponents of international aid alike, for interested laymen and dedicated academics. Amartya Sen, fellow Nobel Prize winner Robert Solow and superstar economics author Steven Levitt wholeheartedly endorse this book. I urge you to read it. It will help shape the debate in development economics."--Financial World (UK)

"Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo are allergic to grand generalizations about the secret of economic development. Instead they appeal to many local observations and experiments to explore how poor people in poor countries actually cope with their poverty: what they know, what they seem (or don't seem) to want, what they expect of themselves and others, and how they make the choices that they can make. Apparently there are plenty of small but meaningful victories to be won, some through private and some through public action, that together could add up to a large gains for the world's poor, and might even start a ball rolling. I was fascinated and convinced."--Robert Solow

"Banerjee and Duflo assemble a fascinating assortment of interventions from across the globe in their book...It is engaging and informative -- which is more than can be said for many books of this genre."--Business World (India)

"Duflo 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."--The Guardian

"Fact-based, actionable and totally unforgettable insights on the fight to help the poor help themselves"--Seth Godin (blog)

"Fascinating 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 serve. They remind us, I think, of our shared humanity and how at some fundamental levels we really do think alike."--Fast Company
