Fetal origins, childhood development, and famine: a bibliography and literature review

Cormac Ó Gráda ()

No 201128, Working Papers from School of Economics, University College Dublin

Abstract: The human costs of famines outlast the famines themselves. An increasing body of research points to their adverse long-run consequences for those born or in utero during them. This paper offers an introduction to the burgeoning literature on fetal origins and famine through a review of research on one well-known case study and a bibliography of published work in the field generally.
