Sponsored by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies. A lecture by Margaret (Maggie) Triyana, visiting assistant professor of economics at the Keough School of Global Affairs and a former visiting fellow at the Kellogg Institute.The impacts of social interventions may persist in the long-term, and this in turn may affect the intergenerational transmission of human capital. Triyana explores the impact of a large-scale school building project on the wellbeing of adults and their children. She finds persistent effects on health about 40 years after the initial program implementation and improved health outcomes for the children of exposed adults.
