George DeMartino will be speaking on April 4th at 7pm in Science 300. DeMartino will be talking about economists and development, which is very related to the book we’ve been reading, Poor Economics. He will likely not be taking a very econometrically oriented view, so if you attend, I’d ask you to blog about how you might go about testing his theories using data. What would an ideal data set look like? What kind of questions would you ask? What would you expect to find, knowing what you know about economics and development?
