Poor Economics to hit bookshelves
 
IBNA: Poor Economics is written by Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo. 

The writers have pioneered the use of randomized control trials in development economics. Work based on these principles, supervised by the Poverty Action Lab, is being carried out in dozens of countries. Drawing on this and their 15 years of research from Chile to India, Kenya to Indonesia, they have identified wholly new aspects of the behavior of poor people, their needs, and the way that aid or financial investment can affect their lives, Amazon says. 

Abhijit V. Banerjee is the Ford Foundation International Professor of Economics at MIT and a founder of the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL). 

Esther Duflo is the Abdul Latif Jameel Professor of Poverty Alleviation and Development Economics at MIT and a founder and director of the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL). 

Translated into Persian by Jafar Kheir Khahan and Mahdi Feizi, the book will be released in Iran by Donya-e Ketab Publications.
