阿比吉特·巴纳吉(Abhijit Banerjee)名言

My guess is that while the elites would like cleaner air, they are not willing to give up the convenience of being able to use their cars at will to get it, perhaps because they believe (I suspect incorrectly) that they can protect themselves from the consequences of vehicular pollution by investing in air-conditioners and air purifiers.

我的猜测是,尽管精英们想要更清洁的空气,但他们不愿意放弃随意使用汽车来获得它的便利,这也许是因为他们相信(我不正确地怀疑)他们可以保护自己免受空气污染。

The problem of getting from home to the metro, BRT or bus stop makes many people take their cars to work. Why not start a fleet of electric buses that just circle through neighbourhoods connecting them to the various public transport hubs?

从家到地铁站,BRT站或公交车站的麻烦使许多人带着汽车上班。 为什么不建立一支电动巴士车队,使它们绕过将它们连接到各个公共交通枢纽的社区呢?

We might think we are very different from Pakistan but we are not; we are the same people, with the same capacity for warmth and passion and intolerance and violence.

我们可能会认为我们与巴基斯坦有很大不同,但我们没有。 我们是同一个人,具有温暖,激情,不容忍和暴力的能力。

The poverty line in the U.S., for example, has nothing to do with the poverty line in India. It is a relative poverty line. It is reset from time to time but it is related to U.S. median income, so if I set that to be the absolute poverty line everyone in India would essentially be poor.

美国的贫困线 S. 例如,与印度的贫困线无关. 这是一个相对贫困线. 有时会重置它,但它与U有关. S. 中位数收入,因此,如果我将其设置为绝对贫困线,那么印度的每个人基本上都将是贫困的.

It is absolute poverty that you could end, but I think relative poverty is a whole other issue.

您可以结束的绝对贫困,但我认为相对贫困是另外一个问题。

When you compare individuals, rather than countries, you find that education improves both income and the quality of life.

当您比较个人而不是国家时,您会发现教育可以改善收入和生活质量。

Catastrophic health shocks do enormous damage to families both economically and otherwise, and are easy to insure, because nobody gets them on purpose. On the other hand, insurance policies that only treat certain catastrophic illnesses are hard to comprehend, especially of you are illiterate and unused to the legalistic nature of exclusions etc.

灾难性的健康冲击无论在经济上还是其他方面都给家庭造成巨大损失,并且易于保险,因为没有人故意使他们遭受伤害。 另一方面,仅治疗某些灾难性疾病的保险单很难理解,尤其是您是文盲且未使用排除等法律性质的保险单。

We've learned a huge amount from organisations like Seva Mandir and Pratham, for example. In my personal experience, these organisations work on a very large scale with very poor people.

例如,我们从Seva Mandir和Pratham等组织学到了很多东西。 以我的个人经验,这些组织与非常贫穷的人一起大规模地工作。
