ah, of course. thanks!

A $1,000 cash transfer costs a bit more than $1,000 to deliver

I'm surprised by this claim!

GiveDirectly's published figures for delivery costs are 10-20% of the total funds, and the financials seem to back this up to my naive eye: "Direct Grants" dominate all other expenses. 9:1 or 8:1 is way different than 1:1 suggested here

How's this figure calculated?

Anecdote: This came up in my EA Intro Fellowship group discussion last week. Someone had heard of EA way back but thought the "Effective" part made us sound like wankers & didn't explore further (until recently).
