More Than Good Intentions

More Than Good Intentions: How a New Economics is Helping to Solve Global Poverty is the new book by Dean Karlan and Jacob Appel, released today. 

I'm about 95% certain that I would be able to tell you I love the book even if I wasn't being paid to promote it. It's like Freakonomics only about global development.

If everyone would just read this book then I would probably be out of a job because you would all be totally convinced of the need for smart evidence-based aid and know all about the fantastic research that IPA is involved with. And I still want you to read it.

So go on, make me unemployed, I dare you.

You can read Chapter 1 here.
