Ester Duflo

To introduce some books in the Development Economics field, we start with this video where Prof. Esther Duflo of MIT, 2009 MacArthur Fellow and 2010 Clark Medal winner gives a TED talk advocating field experiments in order to assist with economic choices in development aid.


In her TED Talk, Esther Duflo refers to books written by other development economists, these are listed below, as well as her own book, co-authored with Abhijit Banerjee.  These books can be found in the UWCSEA-East library.  To request a book that is not in the library, add it to the UWCSEA-East Development Economics Goodreads list.
