Descrizione

Peter Singer and the effective altruism movement challenge all of us to give more to the least fortunate—and to give more effectively. Virtually all of us, including myself, could live a sparer lifestyle in order to reduce more unnecessary suffering and save more lives. Even for many of us who call ourselves effective altruists, giving effectively can still pose a challenge. Too often we tend to respond to the emotional pull of those people and causes closest to us, rather than giving to organizations and causes that have a demonstrated capacity to use donations most effectively. While giving based on our emotional responses and our desire to "repay" causes and institutions we can identify with is normative and natural, the fact remains that many of our behaviors are natural and normative—but still don’t accomplish as much good as they could.
