SFS Professor Irfan Nooruddin conducts study on preferences of the poor in rural bihar

Professor Nooruddin and his colleagues conducted a study in rural Bihar, India, where they asked 3,800 people what they would rather have: cash or infrastructure (public health, roads fixed, etc.). What they found was that over 80% of respondents preferred public health over cash, and that 35% preferred cash over fixing roads; “these results come in the wake of rising interest in basic universal income in democracies around the world, including India and the United States.”

Professor Michael Green outlines a new threat to the U.s. in Korea

Though relations between the U.S. and Korea have had historic importance, President Trump believes that “Korea is cheating the United States and troops should be withdrawn (according to recent research published by Victor Cha in The National Interest).” However, he has very few supporters in this belief. Professor Green cites that Charles Koch has endorsed restraining the U.S. military from overseas presences, which would push U.S. allies to bolster their own military support.
