Ineffective Altruism?


Critics have been stumbling over themselves to undermine the Effective Altruism movement, which endeavors to make charitable giving more effective.

The critics have the winds of Status Quo Bias blowing strongly from behind, and that alone might be enough to win the day. Sigh.
