Poor Economics is making waves . . . refreshingly original, wonderfully insightful . . . an entirely new perspective

A marvellously insightful book by two outstanding researchers on the real nature of poverty
*Amartya Sen*

It has been years since I read a book that taught me so much
*Steven D. Levitt*

A page-turner about the micro-economics of aid policy might not sound too probable, but that's what [Banerjee and Duflo] have written, and it is a truly remarkable book . . . unmistakably contemporary, written beautifully

A compelling and important read

An engrossing new book

Marvellous . . . they deserve to be congratulated, and to be read
*Wall Street Journal*
