Macro Poverty Outlook
The Macro Poverty Outlook analyzes macroeconomic and poverty developments in developing countries.
And they’re still chatting on. Four different clusters of my team discussing elite bargains in their neck of the woods. For a group of macro-fiscal wonks this is refreshing.
Look who made a special appearance at our economists’ retreat! Thanks @gamblingondev for a fantastic session! When my team chooses something over the coffee break you know you’re winning with your arguments! Quite a buzz going on here right now.

@Niginakhon_ Their annual music competition must surely be SamSung?
@gamblingondev @AsthanaRoli YES! I'm energized by our chat earlier today. @AsthanaRoli time for some planning over paneer!
@gamblingondev - while everyone is posting their touristy photos, I’m putting this great read to *real* use with the fabulous team @minfinuzb. #Uzbekistan’s ambitious transformation in recent years is a missing chapter we should write for the second edition!
Slovakian sees a video about American suburbs and posts questions to Reddit. The level of bafflement is hilarious and appropriate.
Hello Boysun! You’re putting on quite the Bahori show. Although it feels a bit more yoz than bahor!😅
Today marks the end of four years as a New Zealand public servant.
It’s been an absolute privilege to work with talented, committed people dedicated to a critical mission: improving lives and futures for New Zealanders and the world.
@gamblingondev Surely you must feel some remorse for unseating the epitome of irony - Kwame Nkrumah as the #1 bestseller on Amazon.
@scepticalranil @gamblingondev Yes! There's not enough good guidance on how to advise policymakers. I also think uncertainty - especially social/political - and how it influences decisions, is heavily ignored, leading to pushes for infeasible or unenduring 1st best technical advice that fails.

Ka maumahara tonu tatou ki a ratou – we will remember them. Today, New Zealanders around the world remember the sacrifices made by all who fought in The World Wars: our veterans, our armed services personnel, families of the fallen, and our refugee communities. #KeiWareWareTatou
