A quick note on this Friday regarding a new-ish (and new to me) economics blog: Economics That Really Matters. With posts written by graduate students and young faculty in economics, the blog aims
to contribute to the discourse of development economics, encourage debate relevant to poverty reduction and agricultural development, and share thoughts from our research experiences.
The most recent article is written by a friend and former colleague of mine (and killer poker player!) Carolina Castilla. She employs field experiments to test outcomes of a trust game to analyze differences in household spending patterns between men and women. The work has important policy implications in the developing world and beyond – so go check it out!
