"Countless lives have been helped or saved with the scientific evidence provided by an experimental approach three economists unleashed more than 20 years ago.

The National Science Foundation highlights the Nobel Prize winning work of MIT economists Esther Duflo and Abhijit Banerjee and their colleague Michael Kremer (University of Chicago).
