This post suggests areas of information that can together lead to medium-term local prosperity. These can be added to any other programs, for example as pamphlets or field officers’ knowledge. The cost-effectiveness of this approach seems competitive: all poor people can be informed of what they need to prosper at the cost of one in twelve persons eligible for a free bednet not receiving one in a specific year. The intended outcome is robust institutions continuously increasing everyone’s wellbeing. This system should prevent catastrophic risks by demotivating aggression by its unenjoyability and unpopularity. Wellbeing improvement should be secured until fundamentally different needs or the means of meeting them or catastrophic risks emerge.
