Book Recommendation: Poor Economics

Poor Economics by Abhijit V. Banerjee and Esther Duflo

Challenging the standard wisdom on how to help developing nations to develop faster, Banerjee and Duflo call on research studies, anthropological analyses, and their own randomized control trials to offer a better and more meaningful way to make sure donations and investments into developing nations do the most good possible. From reassessing how we conceptualize human behavior to revisiting education practices across the planet, the authors shift the entire paradigm of charity on its head. Poor Economics is a must-read if you want to move beyond altruism and into a fully global economy.
