This edition of Top Picks includes topics on the social motives of microfinanciers, the affect of generosity in developing communities, and the transformation of Africa. These posts offer a look into some of the very interesting discussions that are occurring outside of the Center.
- On his new blog, The Evidence Project, Chris Dunford writes about the importance of microfinanciers’ social motives. Check out “Do Social Motives Make Microfinanciers a Better Option for the Poor” to read more about social motives and their implications.
- How does generosity factor into academic excellence and poverty reduction? A new post, “Our Experiments with Generosity“, at Acumen Fund, discusses the importance of generosity in the context of the Teach for India movement.
- A new post, “Five reasons why Kenya and Africa should take off“, on the World Bank blog Africa Can…End Poverty, highlights several major reasons that will escalate Africa’s growth and emergence into the world economy. Topics include demographics, geography, and education.
