    The Poverty of "Development Economics" is a book by Deepak Lal. Adam Szirmai notes that this book "summarised and popularised much of the earlier criticisms on the dominant paradigm" in development economics and that it "was an influential publication which contributed to the enormous shift in thinking about development." The dominant paradigm that he was criticising is described by Lal.   "This landmark book demonstrates clearly and convincingly the power of economic ideas and analysis in tackling the blight of global poverty and provides the perfect grounding-rigorous yet inspirational-for young scholars seeking to help the world's poorest." — Lyn Squire, Director of the World Bank's World Development Report, PovertyBrand: Oxford University Press.

    Teaching with the book Many students are drawn to economics by their hope of understanding important real world problems, such as poverty and inequality. There are grounds for their hope since economics contains useful insights into such problems. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Balogh, Thomas, Economics of poverty.

    The core of Abhijit Banerjee and Esther Duflo’s new book, Poor Economics, can be summed up by a single sentence in the foreword: “[W]e have to abandon the habit of reducing the poor to cartoon characters and take the time to really understand their lives, in all their complexity and richness.” The next plus pages do exactly that, describing and analyzing the choices that people.   The most noteworthy similarity between the theses of Poor Economics and Why Nations Fail appears in the overlap between how B&D portray the poverty trap and how R&A characterize extractive institutions. The poverty trap arises in circumstances that result in a continually reduced future income for an individual in comparison to their present income: not being able to work due to health .
