Anki deck for "Some key numbers that (almost) every EA should know"

How many chicken years are affected per dollar spent on broiler and cage-free campaigns.

I estimate how many chickens will be affected by corporate cage-free and broiler welfare commitments won by all charities, in all countries, during all the years between 2005 and the end of 2018. According to my estimate, for every dollar spent, 9 to 120 years of chicken life will be affected.

My impression is that cage free campaigns have been very successful and there's much less low-hanging fruit, such that I don't think it's reasonable to extrapolate those results to an ongoing basis.

I turned this into a non-question post for you. (Aaron didn't know I could do that, because it's not a normal admin option.)

What is life like at the median global income?

Thanks! That's very much the sort of thing that's helpful.

EA needs consultancies

Those are some pretty compelling numbers, but I'd be a lot more optimistic if they were engaged enough to show up in the comments here. (Maybe — I could imagine they're engaged with EA ideas in other ways, but now we're into territory where I'd feel like I'd need to do more vetting.)

Anki deck for "Some key numbers that (almost) every EA should know"

Thanks Pablo and Joseph!

If you're a person who wants to learn this material, but doesn't have an Anki habit, I'd recommend taking this as an opportunity to try things, and give it a go. Turn remembering things into a deliberate choice.

You can get started here.
