This thesis is a collection of three empirical essays on economic development and poverty alleviation in Indonesia. The first paper evaluates the benefits of the unified program eligibility mechanism, conducting an evaluation of multiple concurrent programs in unison for the first time. The second paper assesses the impacts of program eligibility in tandem with an information campaign on the receipt of social programs. The last paper conducts the first judicious evaluation of whether an initial injection of capital, across all sectors - with the notable exception of infrastructure - can catalyse subsequent economic development, through the mechanism of structural transformation.
