Just six days away from the final vote in a sensational election, J-PAL is excited to host Dr. Donald Green to dig in to what we know about how political campaigns mobilize and persuade voters. His talk will focus particularly on how randomized evaluations have transformed the way campaigns operate.
How does industrialization affect workers’ well-being? J-PAL affiliated professor Chris Blattman (University of Chicago), along with Stefan Dercon (University of Oxford), partnered with five firms in Ethiopia to evaluate the effects of being offered an industrial job—such as positions in textile factories or on large-scale farms—versus an entrepreneurship promotion program.
Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) shared Innovations for Poverty Action's post.
