Making Altruism Work: "Doing Good Better"

Gotham Books
/

People who want to do good for other people and the world often get accused of being "bleeding hearts," or worse. 

William MacAskill has heard it all before.  And he agrees that efforts toward altruism are often derailed by lack of solid information and measurements. 

And he proposes ways around those potholes, in his book Doing Good Better.

We get a chance to ask him questions about his approach and the results it has produced.
