Although the global rate of extreme poverty is at a historic low, the pace of poverty reduction is slowing and the World Bank estimates that more than 700 million people still live on less than $1.90 a day. The 2019 Robert B. Menschel Economics Symposium will discuss the ways behavioral economics can inform development policy to create effective solutions to poverty at the international, national, and local levels.
