What Works in Development? brings together leading experts to address one of the most basic yet vexing issues in development: what do we really know about what works— and what doesn't—in fighting global poverty? The contributors, including many of the world's most respected economic development analysts, focus on the ongoing debate over which paths to development truly maximize results. Should we emphasize a big-picture approach—focusing on the role of institutions, macroeconomic policies, growth strategies, and other country-level factors? Or is a more grassroots approach the way to go, with the focus on particular microeconomic interventions such as conditional cash transfers, bed nets, and other microlevel improvements in service delivery on the ground? The book attempts to find a consensus on which approach is likely to be more effective. Contributors include Nana Ashraf (Harvard Business School), Abhijit Banerjee (MIT), Nancy Birdsall (Center for Global Development), Anne Case (Princeton University), Jessica Cohen (Brookings),William Easterly (NYU and Brookings),Alaka Halla (Innovations for Poverty Action), Ricardo Hausman (Harvard University), Simon Johnson (MIT), Peter Klenow (Stanford University), Michael Kremer (Harvard), Ross Levine (Brown University), Sendhil Mullainathan (Harvard), Ben Olken (MIT), Lant Pritchett (Harvard), Martin Ravallion (World Bank), Dani Rodrik (Harvard), Paul Romer (Stanford University), and DavidWeil (Brown).

Berpikir seperti orang aneh adalah berpikir dengan sudut pandang yang lain, atau bisa juga dibilang berpikir layaknya anak-anak yang bebas merdeka, memikirkan kesenangan sendiri, dan tak mengenal rasa takut.Kita kerap kali memikirkan hal-hal yang besar saja dalam menyelesaikan masalah, sementara ada hal kecil yang bisa kita lakukan yang sering kali terlewatkan. Memang hal kecil yang kita lakukan itu tidaklah menyelesaikan keseluruhan masalah, tetapi setidaknya mengurangi keruwetan masalah tersebut. Buku ini menyenangkan sekali, penulis menceritakan kisah-kisah sepele tetapi sangat informatif dan menyenangkan dari berbagai topik, dari pemilihan sudut tendang saat pemain bola hendak melakukan tendangan penalti, bagaimana seseorang bisa makan sekian banyak hot dog dalam sepuluh menit, dokter dari Australia yang menemukan bahwa penyebab mag adalah bakteri, bagaimana cara seseorang mencari dana untuk membantu anak-anak yang berbibir sumbing di negara dunia ketiga, sampai bagaimana sebuah toko sepatu daring bisa menjadi perusahaan favorit padahal menggaji karyawannya dengan bayaran relatif kecil. Semua kisah itu begitu mengesankan sekaligus menginspirasi kita untuk berpikir dengan sudut pandang lain. Buku ini juga mengajarkan manfaat berhenti. Kita dibesarkan dengan pepatah, maju terus pantang mundur. Seakan-akan jika kita memilih mundur atau berhenti hina atau aib sekali. Padahal untuk hal-hal tertentu, bisa jadi memilih mundur atau berhenti adalah pilihan yang lebih baik dan lebih memungkinkan.

Levitt, Black Swan author Nassim Nicholas Taleb and Nudge co-author Richard Thaler, Thinking Fast and Slow offers a whole new look at the way our minds work, and how we make decisions.Why is there more chance we'll believe something if it's in a bold type face?

This book reveals how our minds are tripped up by error and prejudice (even when we think we are being logical), and gives you practical techniques for slower, smarter thinking.

What happens to a country when its skilled workers emigrate? The first book to examine the complex economic, social, and political effects of emigration on India, Diaspora, Development, and Democracy provides a conceptual framework for understanding the repercussions of international migration on migrants' home countries. Devesh Kapur finds that migration has influenced India far beyond a simplistic "brain drain"--migration's impact greatly depends on who leaves and why. The book offers new methods and empirical evidence for measuring these traits and shows how data about these characteristics link to specific outcomes. For instance, the positive selection of Indian migrants through education has strengthened India's democracy by creating a political space for previously excluded social groups. Because older Indian elites have an exit option, they are less likely to resist the loss of political power at home. Education and training abroad has played an important role in facilitating the flow of expertise to India, integrating the country into the world economy, positively shaping how India is perceived, and changing traditional conceptions of citizenship. The book highlights a paradox--while international migration is a cause and consequence of globalization, its effects on countries of origin depend largely on factors internal to those countries. A rich portrait of the Indian migrant community, Diaspora, Development, and Democracy explores the complex political and economic consequences of migration for the countries migrants leave behind.
Despite its authoritarian political structure, Egypt's government has held competitive, multi-party parliamentary elections for more than 30 years. This book argues that, rather than undermining the durability of the Mubarak regime, competitive parliamentary elections ease important forms of distributional conflict, particularly conflict over access to spoils. In a comprehensive examination of the distributive consequences of authoritarian elections in Egypt, Lisa Blaydes examines the triadic relationship between Egypt's ruling regime, the rent-seeking elite that supports the regime, and the ordinary citizens who participate in these elections. She describes why parliamentary candidates finance campaigns to win seats in a legislature that lacks policymaking power, as well as why citizens engage in the costly act of voting in such a context.
