Reviews

Poor Economics is making waves . . . refreshingly original, wonderfully insightful . . . an entirely new perspective * Guardian *
A marvellously insightful book by two outstanding researchers on the real nature of poverty -- Amartya Sen
It has been years since I read a book that taught me so much -- Steven D. Levitt
A page-turner about the micro-economics of aid policy might not sound too probable, but that's what [Banerjee and Duflo] have written, and it is a truly remarkable book . . . unmistakably contemporary, written beautifully * Guardian *
A compelling and important read * Forbes *
An engrossing new book * Economist *
Marvellous . . . they deserve to be congratulated, and to be read * Wall Street Journal *
