Presentation Summary
Governments around the world target social assistance programs, like subsidized food, to the poorest households, but for many reasons these programs may not reach their intended beneficiaries. In Indonesia, the subsidized rice for the poor program (Raskin) suffers from high leakages, where beneficiaries pay more for and can purchase less of their entitled amount of rice. One potential explanation for this is the monopoly that village leaders have on Raskin distribution. Between April 2013 and February 2014, the National Team for the Acceleration of Poverty Reduction (TNP2K) collaborated with J-PAL affiliated researchers to conduct a randomized evaluation (RE, or RCT) involving 572 villages. They investigated whether encouraging individuals from outside the village government to bid for the right to distribute Raskin might improve the program. Researchers found that the treatment did indeed lead to a small price reduction in Raskin, however, it did not affect the amount of Raskin received by households every month and did not significantly affect the monthly Raskin subsidy received by eligible households. The seminar will discuss the evaluation methodology and implementation in detail as well as the implications of the results.
