  • Ever Failed, Try Again, Succeed Better: Results from a Randomized Educational Intervention on Grit | Becker-Friedman Institute Research Respository
    admin for help if this error continues User login CNetID or Username Password Request new password Log in Ever Failed Try Again Succeed Better Results from a Randomized Educational Intervention on Grit We show that grit a non cognitive skill that has been shown to be highly predictive of achievement is malleable in the childhood period and can be fostered in the classroom environment Our evidence comes from an evaluation of a randomized educational intervention implemented in elementary schools in Istanbul Outcomes are measured via a novel incentivized real effort task and actual school grades on core subjects We find that treated students are 1 more likely to choose to undertake a more challenging and more rewarding task against an easier but less rewarding alternative 2 less likely to give up after failure 3 more likely to exert effort to accumulate task specific ability and consequently 4 more likely to succeed and collect higher payoffs The intervention also has a significant impact on school grades We find that treated students are about 3 percentage points more likely to receive top grades in core academic subjects Authors Sule Alan University of Essex Teodora Boneva University of Cambridge Seda Ertac Koc University

  • Income Inequality, Tax Policy, and Economic Growth | Becker-Friedman Institute Research Respository
    Policy and Economic Growth We investigate how reduction of income inequality through tax policy affects economic growth Taxation at different points of the income distribution has heterogeneous impacts on households incentives to invest work and consume Using U S state level data and micro level household tax returns over the last three decades we find that reduction of income inequality between low and median income households improves economic growth However
