What would be worthy of an up vs down? I was thinking something along this line also though, but my thought was rank them based on didactic potential according to an SNT framework - If you think it is a really important concept(S) but not many people know about it(N), and people would be interested if they did find out (T), this is the highest priority page.
Is this what you meant by best books or were you just thinking rank them by how much you liked them?
I thought your moderate drinking point was very interesting and connected some dots in my head. It seems plausible that the vast majority of causal relations are mild. If this is the case the majority of causality could be ‘occurring’ through effects too small to call significant. I guess that could seem pretty obvious but it isn’t something I ever heard talked about in my econometrics class nor in my RAing.
Thanks for the post. Good to see some investment in the risk loving side of things. However, I am a little disappointed that none of these charities are long-term related or meta. I'm not super hardlined, but there is soft consensus in the EA community that these things are important. Just wondering if anyone knows why charity-entrepreneurship doesn't prioritize these things? I could see the argument that it is hard to run a long-term focused charity, though I haven't thought much on it. Is there another incubator that focuses on these areas? Otherwise it seems like a really promising area to push for.
As a side note, I agree with Misha that I could see decentralized mental health type things being cause-y, would love to see more done in this area. Anyone looking in this direction might want to check out https://www.stickk.com/ , which tries to apply behavioral research to help people "stick" to their goals.
