Climent Quintana-Domeque (Ph.D. Princeton University) is Associate Professor at the University of Alicante. During his visit to the NCID, Quintana-Domeque presented his paper, â€œPaving Streets for the Poor: Experimental Analysis of Infrastructure Effects, which focused on the role of infrastructure in in the active reduction of poverty. In this paper, he explains how Acayucan, a city in Mexico, increased its level of consumption after the implementation of a pavement program designed by the regional government. Quintana-Domeque concluded that the economic returns of street pavement in this developing urban region can be as large as the construction.
