More Than Good Intentions: Improving the Ways the World’s Poor Borrow, Save, Farm, Learn, and Stay Healthy

More Than Good Intentions: Improving the Ways the World’s Poor Borrow, Save, Farm, Learn, and Stay Healthy

BOOK by Yale professor Dean Karlan and social critic Jacob Appel

Penguin, March 2012

This book gives suggestions to policy makers about how to overcome global poverty and improve poor people's lives.

Reviewer John Mecklin says that the “book combines a keen sense of the quirks of behavioral economics with an insistence on the rigorous scientific testing of international development programs, using random, controlled trials to see whether the programs improve people's lives."
