Ending global poverty: Why money is not enough

The world continues to see high poverty in middle-income countries. In this VoxDev talk, Rohini Pande discusses how invisible infrastructure is the necessary compliment required for the poor to access visible infrastructure. To improve marginalised individuals’ access to services, we must go beyond traditional development policies and think of policies that address the restrictive norms and constraints they face.

Power to the people: The impact of political report cards in India

Abhijit Banerjee, Ford Foundation International Professor of Economics, MIT, talks to Tim Phillips about the run-up to 2011 elections in Delhi, India, where residents in a random sample of slums received newspapers containing report cards on politicians. The information was obtained under India’s disclosure laws. The cards presented information on the performance of the incumbent and the qualifications of the two main challengers. Treatment slums saw higher turnout, reduced vote buying, and a higher vote share for better performing and more qualified candidates. Voters assessed whether candidates catered to their interests and compared their performance. Social media can undermine or dilute access to credible information among voters.

Where are the Indian female politicians?

Evidence shows that when more women are elected, it changes broader development outcomes due to their differing priorities. Yet women are almost unrepresented in parliaments around the world. In this interview, Lakshmi Iyer reveals to Tim Phillips that in India the challenge is that a woman winning a Parliamentary candidacy election does not see an increase in female candidates in the following election. This is likely due to underlying gender biases in society which even female quotas are unable to mitigate.
