[Update: 11:00 AM on 4/23/2018. Upon the request of the guest bloggers, this post has been updated to include GiveDirectly's updated blog post, published on their website on 4/20/2018, within the text of their post rather than within Özler’s response that follows.]

We’re glad our paper evaluating the long-term impacts of cash transfers has been discussed by GiveDirectly (the source of the transfers) itself and Berk Özler at the World Bank, among others (GiveDirectly has since updated their take on our paper). Given the different perspectives put forth, we wanted to share a few clarifications and our view of the big picture implications.
