Scalably Involving People

Scalably Involving People is a category of discussion around how good or bad EA is at efficiently allocating many people to valuable work, how good or bad EA is at recommending valuable actions large segments of the population could take, the consequences of EA's strengths or weaknesses on those fronts, how to improve, and how this all might change as EA grows.

A related but narrower discussion centers on the concept of "Task Y": a task which has one or more of the following properties:

  • It be performed usefully by people who are not currently able to choose their career path entirely based on EA concerns
  • It's clearly effective, and doesn't become much less effective the more people who are doing it
  • Its positive effects are obvious to the person doing the task
