“What works in development” is available again

what_works_in_developmentAfter my whining in a previous post that the great publication “What works in development: Thinking Big and Thinking Small” was not easily available, it is once again available on Amazon.

Let me repeat the previous sales pitch: although I am one of the editors, this is not about self-promotion.  The main contribution of the book is to feature a galaxy of academic superstars heatedly debating how or whether to apply randomized evaluation to development projects (see one of our most popular posts of all time:  “The Civil War in Development Economics“). This is the only book anywhere that summarizes the arguments on both sides.

Any interest? Can we bump up its current rating on Amazon from #81,373?

    I would buy and read it if it were available on Kindle, but alas.

  • About Aid Watch

    The Aid Watch blog is a project of New York University's Development Research Institute (DRI). This blog is principally written by William Easterly, author of "The Elusive Quest for Growth: Economists' Adventures and Misadventures in the Tropics" and "The White Man's Burden: Why the West's Efforts to Aid the Rest Have Done So Much Ill and So Little Good," and Professor of Economics at NYU. It is co-written by Laura Freschi and by occasional guest bloggers. Our work is based on the idea that more aid will reach the poor the more people are watching aid.
