“Poor Economics” provides a wealth of practical solutions that have been proven effective in reducing poverty. From microfinance programs that empower women to conditional cash transfers that incentivize education, the book offers a roadmap for policymakers and practitioners alike.

Its rigorous analysis and evidence-based approach have earned “Poor Economics” widespread acclaim. It has been translated into over 30 languages and has become a must-read for anyone seeking to understand and combat poverty.

By rethinking poverty, “Poor Economics” empowers us to create a more just and equitable world. It is a beacon of hope, illuminating the path towards a future where poverty is no longer an insurmountable barrier.
