This is a linkpost for a new In Pursuit of Development episode where Dan and I talked about effective altruism, the capability approach, aid targeting, and the politics of foreign aid.

People here might be interested in, or have comments/criticisms on:

  • how I discuss EA and maximization and SBF fallout, 
  • what the capability approach is and how it can improve EA, 
  • the politics of foreign aid and why I think concerns that aid will hurt governance in recipient countries are overblown,
  • how and why aid is targeted within countries

If people do have questions or criticisms, I'll try to be somewhat active in the comments.
