              FROM THE WINNERS OF THE 2019 NOBEL PRIZE IN ECONOMICS 'Wonderfully refreshing . . . A must read' Thomas Piketty In this revolutionary book, prize-winning economists Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo show how economics, when done right, can help us solve the thorniest social an...d political problems of our day. From immigration to inequality, slowing growth to accelerating climate change, we have the resources to address the challenges we face but we are so often blinded by ideology. Original, provocative and urgent, Good Economics for Hard Times offers the new thinking that we need. It builds on cutting-edge research in economics - and years of exploring the most effective solutions to alleviate extreme poverty - to make a persuasive case for an intelligent interventionism and a society built on compassion and respect. A much-needed antidote to polarized discourse, this book shines a light to help us appreciate and understand our precariously balanced world.

              The experience of the last decade has not been kind to the image of economists- asleep at the wheel (perhaps with the foot on the gas pedal) in the run-up to the great recession, squabbling about how to get out of it, tone-deaf in discussions of the plight of Greece or the Euro a...rea; they seem to have lost the ability to provide reliable guidance on the great problems of the day. In this ambitious, provocative book Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo show how traditional western-centric thinking has failed to explain what is happening to people in a newly globalized world- in short Good Economics has been done badly. This precise but accessible book covers many of the most essential issues of our day, including why migration doesn't follow the law of supply and demand, why trade liberalization can drive unemployment up and wages down and why nobody can really explain why and when growth happens. In doing so, they seek to reclaim this essential terrain, and to offer readers an economist's view of the most pressing issues of the day, one that is candid about the complexities, the zones of ignorance, and the areas of genuine disagreement.

              Advances in the theory and practice of field experiments have created demand for expert evaluation of their findings. As field experiments become increasingly ambitious and creative, many seek accessible insights that a comprehensive, critical review can offer. Contributors to th...is extraordinary volume explain how to conduct experimental research, present a catalog of what the research has found thus far, and describe which areas remain to be explored. The section on methodology should be of particular interest to scholars working with experimental methods. Among substantive findings, contributors report on a body of results in areas from politics to education to firm productivity, demonstrating the power of these methods while shedding light on issues such as robustness and external validity. Separating itself from circumscribed debates of specialists, this volume surpasses in usefulness the many journal articles and narrowly-defined books written by practitioners. * Balances methodological insights with analyses of principal findings and suggestions for further research* Appeals broadly to social scientists seeking to develop an expertise in field experiments* Strives to be analytically rigorous while written in language accessible to graduate students and non-specialist economists

              Esther Duflo y Abhijit Banerjee, ganadores del Premio Nobel de Economia 2019. El libro que cambiara nuestra manera de pensar sobre la pobreza y lo que debemos hacer para aliviarla. ?Como se vive con menos de un dolar al dia? ?Por que los microcreditos resultan utiles pero no son ...el milagro que algunos esperaban? ?Por que los pobres dejan pasar las campanas de vacunacion gratuita pero pagan por medicinas que a menudo no necesitan? ?Por que sus hijos pueden ir a la escuela ano tras ano y no aprender nada? ?Por que no siempre invierten en obtener mas calorias, sino calorias que saben mejor? Nuestra tendencia a reducir a los pobres a un conjunto de cliches nos ha impedido hasta ahora comprender los problemas a los que se enfrentan a diario. Dado que poseen tan poco, hemos asumido que no hay nada de interes en su vida economica. Las politicas gubernamentales destinadas a ayudarles muchas veces fracasan porque se fundamentan en suposiciones erradas con respecto a sus circunstancias y su conducta. Repensar la pobreza supone un revolucionario giro en el modo de abordar la lucha global contra la pobreza. Sus autores, dos consagrados economistas del MIT, han acudido directamente a los protagonistas para comprender como funciona de verdad la economia de los pobres, cuales son sus motivaciones y aspiraciones. Los resultados de sus observaciones contradicen muchas de nuestras creencias mas arraigadas. El innovador planteamiento de este libro empieza por cambiar las preguntas. A partir de ahi, ofrece las respuestas y, con ellas, un gran potencial transformador y una guia esencial para politicos, activistas y cualquier persona preocupada por construir un mundo sin desigualdad. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION The winners of the Nobel Prize in Economics upend the most common assumptions about how economics works in this gripping and disruptive portrait of how poor people actually live. Why do the poor borrow to save? Why do they miss out on free life-saving immunizations, but pay for unnecessar

              El nuevo libro de los premios Nobel de Economia Banerjee y Duflo, autores de Repensar la pobreza. No todos los economistas llevan corbata y piensan como banqueros. De lectura obligada. -Thomas Piketty En este libro refrescante e ideal para el momento que vivimos, los premios Nobe...l Duflo y Banerjee descubren al lector hasta que punto la economia, cuando se ejerce bien, puede resolver nuestros problemas sociales y politicos mas acuciantes. Tenemos los recursos para afrontar todos los retos, de la inmigracion a la desigualdad o a la emergencia climatica, pero la ideologia nos ciega con demasiada frecuencia. ?Por que las migraciones no siguen las leyes de la oferta y la demanda? ?Por que la liberalizacion del comercio puede aumentar el desempleo y bajar los salarios? ?Por que nadie ha logrado explicar de manera convincente las condiciones necesarias para el crecimiento? Las experiencias de las ultimas decadas no han ofrecido una imagen amable de los economistas: dormidos al volante (con el pie en el acelerador) en el periodo previo a la gran recesion, discutiendo despues sobre como salir de ella, o haciendo oidos sordos a las voces de alarma sobre la dificil situacion de Grecia o la zona euro, parecen haber perdido la capacidad de orientarnos. Sin embargo, Duflo y Banerjee defienden el papel de los economistas, asi como el intervencionismo inteligente y la busqueda de una sociedad basada en la empatia y el respeto. Este libro es un verdadero antidoto contra el discurso polarizado. ENGLISH DESCRIPTION ?Is opening up to international trade good for everybody? ?Do immigrants from poorer countries take away jobs from low-income native workers? ?Why is inequality exploding everywhere? ?Does redistribution actually undermine incentives? ?Should we worry about the rise of artificial intelligence or celebrate it? ?How do we manage the trade-off between growth and climate change? ?Is economic growth over in the West?. Should we care? Figuring out how to deal with today s critica
