Economic policies: should they be tested?

(IN)Pertinente with Cátia Batista: What is the use of implementing economic policies without knowing for sure the population's needs? What is the use of an economic solution if the target audience does not know or can use it? Economic policies must be tested like medicines; and this is one of our Professor's expertises. In this episode, listen to the examples you mentioned by Hugo Van Der Ding and understand how not all "recipes" are used to support the development of populations.

(IN)Pertinente is a Podcast developed by Francisco Manuel dos Santos Foundation.
