Trying to keep it sophisticatedly simple
You could add this one as well, https://www.ted.com/talks/sendhil_mullainathan?language=en
Thank you! Mullainathan hits the nail on the head.
Every single time, specially in his book Scarcity (http://scholar.harvard.edu/sendhil/scarcity)!
I love that book! Should be required reading for anybody thinking of working in development.
I totally agree with you!
His NYT stuff is always great as well. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/10/09/upshot/sending-potatoes-to-idaho-how-the-free-market-helps-food-banks.html?_r=0
I read Scarcity alongside Portfolios of the Poor and I thought they complimented each other well https://www.amazon.co.uk/Portfolios-Poor-How-Worlds-Live/dp/0691148198/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1478010432&sr=8-1&keywords=portfolios+of+the+poor
I had missed this particular NYT article!
“Many economics textbooks separate efficiency from equity, but perceptions of the two are intertwined”- I so wanted someone to say this, finally I can utter it louder now!!
And thanks for reminding me about Portfolios of the Poor, had read parts of it. Gotta finish it now!!
