Marco Visscher has quoted me in an article in Ode magazine on the “randomistas”. In Dutch but worth putting through an electronic translator.

The randomistas are development economists who focus their work on doing randomised control trials of different development projects. For example, trying to work out how to bolster school attendance or get people to accept immunisations. It can be seen as a development version of “Nudge” approaches to influencing behaviour.
