Chile’s tax and transfer system does comparatively little to reduce income inequality from earnings. Interesting proposal by @ignaciobriones to expand the use of cash transfers to reduce inequality and incentivize formalization of economic activity.

Ive been thinking a lot about the acts of courage, defiance and resistance that are unfolding across Ukraine as its people defend their freedom, democracy & homeland. Of this I am certain, as long as tyranny threatens liberty anywhere, Ukraine's heroes will inspire generations🇺🇦

Very good article by Adam Taylor cites my recent work with Paul Gubbins & Anne Bakilana. It highlights the 2 main points: COVID deaths & infections in Africa are likely greater than official numbers, and there’s lot of uncertainty washingtonpost.com/world/2022/02/…

In the absence of good data on all-cause deaths from vital registration systems, can obituaries tell us anything about the scope and dynamics of mortality during the pandemic in ? Although there are limitations, the answer is yes. blogs.worldbank.org/africacan/coul…

Learned a lot from this event on wastewater testing as a surveillance tool in public health. The returns to investments in building wastewater testing capabilities appear to be massive from a prevention standpoint, hope to see more advances & adoption! Congrats Jeremy Veillard!
