Papers I liked

The biggest and best development economics conference of the year was this past weekend, NEUDC. Many interesting papers here. Some highlights:

  1. What does conditionality on cash transfers do?
  2. A cynical theory of why we are generous? Or why some aid is bad and we don’t care.
  3. What happens when Indian women get jobs in textile mills?
  4. Can workfare programs reduce violence? Evidence from India
  5. What happens when you make voter registration easier or more difficult? Evidence from France but lessons for the US
