"Took it for granted that you know if you have a despotic leader borrowing than the future Governments especially if they're you know democratic governments they shouldn't be burdened by debts and it it sort of seemed natural and logical and sensible. And i didn't think about it it seemed right until i started Working with hugo and our other two co-authors about the haitian debt and in that context One of our other co-authors mark weidemeyer started the question of you. Know why have we framed this doctrine in this particular fashion and my best guess from the literature and talking to social anthropologist who studied this in more detail is that it's a product of the interests who created this doctrine. Now this is a doctrine that was created by the us state department in the late eighteen hundreds after the spanish american war. They didn't want to pay the debts that had been incurred by spain using cuba as collateral. And so they said you know you were despotic. Leader leaders putting down in independence movement and then the us again in Two thousand three two thousand four does not want to pay a saddam hussein's debt so the rejuvenation of the odious debt doctrine again is in the context of a despotic leader. But it it never really touches. Colonial debts where the leaders are not quite as despotic and much more complicated in part because the countries in the scholars who pushed the doctrine were pushing it in a particular context. I don't know who go if you have a different view. I i mean i am. I am a former colonial subject and grew up in the caribbean. So i have a particularly jaundiced view of all of this there. He also another aspect. So there's the aspect from let's say ngo movements gay you know. Kill the dan Stuff in these people would like to council All sorts of debts so amore. I dunno leftist if you wanna call it this way perspective ride and there. There is a debate. A me too said it's it seems reasonable that when somebody burrows to oppress its on people That should not be enforceable but then if you talk with market people tell you where to draw line right. It's like where. Where does the guy become a destined and some people say you'll start going day.

"That was their idea and they had to do that via camps viagra education and what we did is walked wisdom to set up a number of experiment where we could demonstrate that why this program really works because we tried it in hundreds of schools and then thousands of schools and we can see that the kids who benefited from this program do much better than similar kids who haven't gotten it yet and the advantages that after that you do have an uncertain and it's not me who has the answer is cut them. Who has the answer. But i was able to demonstrate that. It's a good answer was their help. And then once you have the dumpster very simple to explain. It's like the vaccine. You know it works. Yeah so we can take this idea and take you to to government and take to ngos and get it scaled up and used to that. It reaches millions of children so today this program of it reaches million children in india and it is now being scaled up across several countries in africa. And the unser. I didn't come up with or i did can facilitate the demonstration of the unser so that it can then easily be adopted in other places when it works. But you're like the calculator mike. The one that can save. But yes you have an idea and a wonder does this work and i am the person that could tell you. This might work or this. Might not work or at least give you more data and i just feel like the reliance on economists like you said. The trust factor. I mean i. I barely trust moore weather. I think his name is flip. Spiceland and i just i can't. I can't begin to trust a name like that. Flip spiceland but that's a made up name. Since does it frustrate you because you were one of the youngest faculty members to be awarded tenure and when you have all these labels that should make you this shining star that people go to and there are a lot of economists like that but sometimes when the general public doesn't trust economist does get frustrating. When you know that your soul goal in your heart is to help people you know. Not truly because i think we need to earn that trust and i think each of us in our work need to earn that trust by doing work that is relevant and useful so i do think it's a little bit unfair level of mistrust for economists because i think he present to some extent on vision of what they're going to do on our aac. Recently we bought the book good for hot time which was trying to be a beautiful loudspeaker. For what do doing reality so that maybe understand and get familiarized with all of the type of different work and also the diversity of results and and the fact that people work with the facts. But i think it is on us economist to undiscussed. It's not on us to expect. That is going to come naturally and in my own work. I started working with others. In particular michael kramer unabridged banerjee who got the nobel prize with me. I started working doing dishonest controlled trials and very quickly..

"Sunshine 52 degrees in Boston getting cold this week, then warming up again. Right now it's one o'clock on your Monday. Good afternoon. Here's what's happening. Hope promising news on the Colbert 19 vaccine from this Monday mode. Erna and Cambridge says it's shot provides strong protection against coronavirus. WBC's James RoHaas looks at the question. When will it be available? Early data shows my journals vaccine is nearly 95% effective, which is great following the news that visors vaccine was over 90%. This is coming from the Data Safety monitoring board appointed by the National Institutes of Health. Now, Madonna says there are no real safety concerns, with only a few experiencing mild side effects. For a short time, those most at risk and health care workers could start receiving the vaccine in this winter. But it may not be until spring when it's available for the general public. James RoHaas WBZ Boston's news radio games with Thanksgiving, almost here in the pandemic in full swing demand is rising for covert tests for families who want to spend the holidays with their family. ABC chief medical correspondent, Dr Jen Ashton says, Look for facilities with 24 to 48 hour turnaround for results than be prepared for false negatives. Or positives. He CR is considered the gold standard. But it's not perfect and should not be used in someone. We know who's had Cove it because you can pick up viral debris, and that doesn't necessarily mean they're actively infected. Although people have been re infected with Coben in Massachusetts, health officials and Governor Baker have recommended That you celebrate Thanksgiving with your immediate household only or move the festivities online or even outside. Of course, that depends on the weather, doesn't it? Covert cases are on the rise in the Commonwealth. The state reporting Daily case totals of more than 2000 for the past six consecutive days. The Massachusetts Department of Public Health also says the seven day weighted average of positive test one above 3% For the third day in a row. Another 33 people have died in Massachusetts from the virus. 737 are being treated for covert related illness in the hospital. As of this morning, 159 of them are patients in the ICU in the city of Boston Mayor Marty Walsh says they are trending in the wrong direction. Meanwhile, hotel workers take a huge hit from the pandemic. WBC's Karen Regal with his story Mary complicate half its staff, according to reports confirm now by WBZ Radio. That's a lot of people says Unite here, local 26 vice president Michael Kramer, who says jobs will likely come back, But there's no guarantee the workers will no one would have any assurances of return. Should the work come back? No assurances that they would be treated any differently than a new higher office suite. He says more help is needed from the state for these workers, too. Chairman Regal WBZ Boston's news radio. A new memorial in Boston honors the victims of racial injustice that's coming up right now It's 103 traffic and weather together. The Subaru retailers of New England all will draw the traffic on the threes. We have two problems and maybe more. Here's Kevin Brennan. With all of it. All right, Laurie, watching one of the big problems here about Lynnfield drew one South bound continues to be closed just after the Lynnfield Tunnel due to a pickup truck that crashed into the median driver suffered serious injuries here. So all lanes air still closed Route one south bound after the Lynnfield Tunnel. This is all results from a police chase as well. Now delays on the South bound side or back to the 95 ramp in PBD. I believe all traffic, maybe detoured onto Rue 1 28 Route one North bound. Only the right lady is getting by this crash scene and traffic back beyond the Lin Fells Parkway not quite back to Main Street right now, so probably best to avoid the area off Saugus and Lynnfield. If you can. Ah, Long Route one of the rest of the roads downtown. You're looking pretty good all around, especially along the river roads and airport. Tuttle's Morrissey Boulevard Outbound is closed for high tide flooding here between U Mass and Free Port ST. Sounds like the inbound side is still open. But do expect some heavy flooding. Expressways moving well in both directions south of town. 24 North found you got over a mile of stop and go traffic approaching the left lane work crews before that 93 split here and Randolph. They're expected to pick up around two o'clock this afternoon. Kevin Brennan. Double Doobies ease traffic on the threes. All right, Kevin.

An Interview With Nobel Economics Prize-Winner Michael Kremer

"Economics as a field it can have the reputation of being kind of abstract cerebral yes that's true if matty lots of CIGNA's you know complicated financial instruments ivory tower stuff Michael Creamer our newly minted Nobel laureate says he here's this from people all the time people have a view of economic says only about the stock market talks next. That's the question that you get when you sit makes people on airplanes there like is the stock market GonNa go up hopefully classic questions going to the I I also much place on that one now is a Nobel prize so you really want to know if he thinks. I got this doctor from a Nobel Prize winner and the response he might give to somebody who asks him for stomach that look development economics is something different branches mixed focuses on improving conditions in developing countries so Michael's research is looked at different ways to improve health care education agriculture social conditions all these different things in those developing countries Michael got started in this kind of economics when he was visiting a friend who was teaching in Kenya his friend was working for a nonprofit and had been put in charge of a bunch of local schools and they were trying to figure out how to best run these schools and where to invest their very limited resources we weren't sure uh what the best approach was they had several different ideas that they were interested in China and as we were talking I suggested that perhaps they could try some approaches in some schools and other approaches and other schools and they did that systematically they could learn what was what was working best and evaluate the impact of what they're doing much isn't Medical trial much as in a medical trial real world trials are used in many of the sciences but applying them in economics was groundbreaking in some of the most noted work of Michael Kramer and his colleagues they looked at where to best allocate resources impoverished schools in Kenya so for example would students benefit more from free textbooks or from free meals it turned out neither of those things actually made a huge impact for the students what did make a huge impact for the students another study uncovered a pretty unexpected answer to that hyphen free access to de worming medication. Hookworm whipper roundworm worms that actually used to be in the southern United States. take the medication to treat worms was quite cheap but it did still cost some money and there were a lot of parents who are still not getting it for their kids what made a huge difference was when kids were given free access to de worming medication Michael says the impact it had on their education was extraordinary we found that topic for much more like quitting school absence from school what by one quarter reflect when they had access to the medicine Michael and his colleagues followed the students for years all the way through school and into the workforce and they found that free access to de worming medication just kept paying off this was a while ago Alga young adults we see that they're actually earning more and consuming more and the girls are more likely to onto secondary school so huge impact relative to the really tiny costs lose medicines cost really pennies per does investing in De worming medication as it turned out had a much bigger impact on the educations professional lives of kids than textbooks or school meals and economic mixed figured that out the solution was not obvious it emerged after a series of rigorous experiments that were systematically trying different approaches until they found the most active efficient solution Michael and his colleagues presented that information to the Kenyan government you want to help kids and keep them in school put your money here in best in de worming medication and it will affect major change it will move the needle they were excited about it and they decided they wanted to launch an national program and then Indians state governments heard heard about it and then the national government of India introduced a similar program so now Aw Th Indian program is reaching more than one hundred million children every year and I think I remember reading that The program actually did a pain for itself through increased tax revenue because people did become more productive when they were healthier is that is that right that's exactly right recent follow up work we've looked at the economic impact of us now that students at the time of original de worming are now in the labor force and see the people are earning more Ah The free just do the calculations turns out of the extra tax revenue alone would have been more than enough to pay the cost of the program. It's estimated that the work of Michael Creamer in his fellow laureates this year has changed the lives of hundreds of millions of people around the world and Michael Says he's very glad to see that a more hands on kind of economics is being acknowledged invalidated in such an important way we're trying to do work that is very rigorous that is using the Ah Tours of of economics but that is also engaged with practical problems it's easy to see the problems of global poverty and to think that there are intractable that we can't make a difference but actually there's been huge progress there will be more progress as economics is applied to different problems in the developing world he thinks he can help find simple practical solutions that can actually make a big difference. Michael says he is incredibly excited to see economics being used this way and of course peace excited about winning the Nobel yeah maybe we'll even figure out how to celebrate it properly congratulations thank you so much and I think you should upgrade to regular coke for at least a week paid lip balm yeah there you go there now we're talking we're talking

"Hundred W R, E C and ninety two point one FM. And welcome back. Michael Crema with us. We'll take your calls as we talk about his work as the forbidden. Archaeologist Michael d you stand alone in this field or there are others. Like, you who would back you. Well, it's yeah. It's interesting that you bring that up. Yeah. There are a few researchers and the mainstream science field who have been influenced by my work, and I'll mention one of them have here years ago. I was invited to speak at the geology department of the university of Oklahoma Norman. Yeah. There was a professor of geology there. David Demi good school too. And you know, I was pretty amazed at a professor of geology at this geology department of this big university was inviting me to speak to the professors and graduate students of geology there. So I asked them how did you? Learn about my work. And he said, well, I heard you on coast to coast. There you go. You'd be surprised less thing. Jordan, as a matter of fact, I gotta tell you this story because Tom had sent me a tax Billy Gibbons from Z Z top is listening to you right now. He loves the show, and he's all excited about you. Isn't that cool? You're gonna I'm gonna have you grow a beard like like, Billy Gibbons and dusty. Yeah. So take you about one hundred years. So what I went to the university of Oklahoma Norman that I talked to the geology department there. I mentioned the case from Oklahoma was holliman Corey discovery is from the nineteen twenties had some projectile points that are like arrowheads stone arrowheads that were found very deep in this quarry in layers of rock about two billion years old. So David Demi heard about this. And we talked about it. And either side it to investigate the case. So he went out, you know, he he located the Holum the old Holloman Corey he went out, he visited it. He looked into it. And he became pretty much convinced. I think it got him into a little bit of trouble with some of his colleagues, but. That often happens does. It's happened to you before to isn't it? Well, absolutely from. I mean, I call my topic forbidden archeology because sometimes I get forbid, you know, I my books have been published in a lot of different languages one of them is Russia. So once I was on Elektra tour of Russia. I was speaking at universities all over the country, but at one university. Yeah, a lecture had been scheduled for me. But some professors at this university decided to protest to the president of the university. They cancelled the lecture so the professors who invited me went to the local grants of the Russian Academy of sciences and the director of of the Russian Academy of science breath that. City said well, if they won't let Michael Kramer, speak at the university, he could speak here. So they had buses braying students professors from the university to the Russian Academy of science building. And the professors who invited me said more people came then would've come if the lecture been held at the university because everybody wanted to know what is this man going to say that so dangerous that his lecture was cancelled and he was forbidden to speak at the university. So yeah, if I did get forbidden from time to time. I I'd have to change the name of my topic tragedy about the Notre Dame cathedral today. God. Yeah. Absolutely. I I've been there a few times, and it just goes to show you. Yeah. Because sometimes people ask about well. What would happen to the remains of our civilization? And you know, sometimes we think our monuments are pretty solid you kind of look at that nortre Dame Cassini drill like with its stone structure, and you think that's pretty solid. But yeah, as we saw it can there's would in their eight hundred years old if can catch fire and the whole thing could have come down. I mean, fortunately, it appears they were able to stop the fire before the whole thing came. Yeah, they may be able to replenish it again, and and put it back together. But who knows but that just shows you what can happen. Yeah. Over the course of a few hundred or few thousand years at all this stuff that we think is so solid. Is ready? Really pretty fragile. I mean, unless we're talking like something like the pyramids. That's right. That's that stone those were built to last today. There was a story that might cooperate the biblical version of Moses leading his people out of Egypt with the exodus that could be an amazing story. And I just I love it. When science Michael finally catches up to historical biblical events. I wish we could find Noah's ark one day. Somebody just sent me a picture of something that looks like an arc from northern Iraq. That's interesting anyways. Let's take some calls for you. We'll go to Dave and Ottawa in Canada to get things started David go ahead. Thank you so much for taking my call, George. Just by the topic. And metric sounds so eloquent in Washington talking about especially the whole concept of was it the evolution of mankind. Did we existence various forms side-by-side various points of history? Then what happened with the calmest not destroyed dependence out the dinosaurs and stuff by the sound of the timeframe that talking about our ass would have answered what have witnessed that? And and probably maybe a little short step in Volusia order to step behind the moving on again to where we are today. But the other thing is bring into more modern. Side-by-side living in in various.

"For just over eight years now, I don't move too fast anymore because my knees are shot and my back hurts all the time or malefic arm, scar beyond recognition at this point. It's something that I wouldn't trade him for the world because it's a lot of what makes me take. And it's a lot like what makes me happy with life. It's just become this incredible thing, and I wouldn't trade it for anything. He knows how I met my fiance right now was through wrestling and tell him out a lot of friends who two of which will be in my wedding wrestlers just as much a part of who I am as the crappy day job sitting in an office type in the numbers. I don't care about for people. I don't care about you know, making money for somebody else. So for me, it's kind of like, I guess it selfish. But in a way, it's not because. You gotta find what makes you happy. And you have to kind of stick to what it is that kind of keeps you going and for me, it's always been wrestling. We are we pretend to be. So we can't for what you pretend to be. If we spend too much time pretending to be normal giving into the sometimes depressing. Details of life that are outside of our control. Don't we risk losing the parts of us that are most vibrant, most bold and unique mine, I think they have their own expectation of what they want our life to be and where you get your enjoyment of filming and some people can reach a professional level of doing that and others just can't.
