RESEARCH IN PROGRESS

“Windfall or Downfall: Time Inconsistent Behavior in the Absence of Microfinance” (with Abhijit Vinayak Banerjee, Esther Duflo, Prathap Kasina, and Cynthia Kinnan)

We measure the impacts of the withdrawal of microfinance from urban neighborhoods in the wake of the 2010-2011 microfinance crisis in Andhra Pradesh, India. In particular, we explore whether households with greater present bias were less well-equipped to manage the windfall gain from the crisis's implicit loan forgiveness policy.
