Rethinking the fight against poverty (2011)

Esther Duflo

First in 2007 and then in 2011, the French economist, winner of the Nobel Prize for Economics in 2019, gave two lectures in Trento on the subject that was to lead to her winning the illustrious prize 8 years later. In the lecture that we present, Esther Duflo illustrates the first results of her approach to combating poverty, based on scientific rigour and careful experimentation in the field.
