[Link] Introduction to Cause Prioritisation
post by OlafvdVeen
score: 2 (6 votes) ·
Two months ago, I published a short article on Cause Prioritisation aimed at a general audience. The article covers a basic explanation of the field and how it appears to differ from Effective Altruism, as well as some common objections I've heard. It is quite cursory, and I am not an expert, but I hope it might still be useful for some people.
