How Lives Change
Can we really measure social mobility and changing life circumstances? Nicholas Stern, with his co-authors Himanshu and Peter Lanjouw, sought to answer key questions about development economics in a 70 year study of Indian village Palanpur. They documented it in their book How Lives Change, and Stern is here to share his experience of using a real-life 'laboratory' to chart discoveries about human development. Chaired by journalist and broadcaster Liz Leonard.
