Costas Meghir, professor of economics at Yale University, focuses in his research on breaking the cycle of intergenerational transmission of poverty in India with the help of early childhood intervention programs. His goal is to find the best and most sustainable period for an intervention or combination of interventions. This research may have implications for the 250 million children under the age of 5 in developing countries who are at risk of failing to reach their full potential.
