Neither the nutrition program nor the small cash transfer had many effects, but the large cash transfer did help on several outcomes. Cyrus Samii points to a this paragraph as a real key in thinking about the contribution of the cash comparison idea: While transfer programs maximize scope for choice and therefore provide an important window on beneficiary priorities, a comparison to other more targeted programs will inevitably require policymakers to explicitly make tradeoffs across outcome dimensions, across beneficiary populations, and between large benefits for concentrated subgroups or small benefits that are diffuse over a broader target population.
By contrast with the index fund analogy, part of the value of cash transfer programs as a benchmark is that they may require donors to be explicit about their preferences, and to justify interventions that constrain beneficiary choices. Findings-wise, the cash recipients had been doing better economically than a comparison group, both two and four years after the first transfer.
