I'm shocked by Nobel Laureate Abhijeet Banerjee's this article on #rape! He thinks men rape because they do not get enough sex! And that child marriage is how village patriarchs try to prevent rape! I'm very worried about his gender empowerment projects!

2/This article is #AbhijitBanerjee's explanation for the Delhi bus gang rape and an increase in such rapes. Do we assume that if poor men were each given 3-4 room houses where each person has private space to have sex then he won't rape? Do rich men not rape/gang rape?
3/ In all his work with the underprivileged, did #AbhijitBanerjee learn nothing about the sexual mores of various tribal communities in India which are far more open than educated urbans and allow for sexual freedom & choice for men & women (w/out owing homes or having privacy)?

In 2001 I was in the UMD Ph.D. program which had no faculty listing “development econ” as their primary field. I had no exposure to modern devo. #AbhijitBanerjee stopped by my poster at a @WIDER conf in Helsinki, and politely, gently explained that what I was doing was not great.
That was the most important 20 minutes of my Ph.D. educ. This is taking nothing away from my incredibly supportive PhD advisors who were in other fields

Abhijit and I were on same flight back, and he came back to Economy class to sit with me for an hour to chat! I learnt a lot
