I run the non-engineering side of the EA Forum (this platform) and work on some other content-related tasks at CEA. Please feel free to reach out! Email me or message me through the Forum. You can find out more about my job

Some of my favorite of my own posts:

I finished my undergraduate studies with a double major in mathematics and comparative literature in 2021. I was a research fellow at Rethink Priorities in the summer of 2021 and was then hired by the Events Team at CEA. I've since switched to the Online Team. In the past, I've also done some (math) research and worked at Canada/USA Mathcamp.

I'm glad people are finding the new feature useful (I've fought with Forum post footnotes before and was really excited about the development). And thanks @Lorenzo for sharing the link!

Vox on cash transfers vs "graduation programs" for fighting extreme poverty

I really appreciate this comment, thank you!

I agree with your disappointment about the lack of any quantitative aspect, and I'm adding the paper you linked to my reading list. 

I've also been planning on reading selected books and papers from Further reading/References in the Growth and the case against randomista development for a while, but if you have other recommendations, I'd love to hear them.

The moderation team feels that phrases like “called you out on it being bullshit” aren’t constructive for this discussion (or on the Forum as a general rule). Please don’t use them.

Some comments in this thread are uncivil and break Forum norms. The moderation team is asking John Halstead to refrain from adding more to this thread.

A comment from the moderation team: 

This topic is extremely difficult to discuss publicly in a productive way. First, a lot of information isn’t available to everyone — and can’t be made available — so there’s a lot of guesswork involved. Second, there are a number of reasons to be very careful; we want community spaces to be safe for everyone, and we want to make sure that issues with safety can be brought up, but we also require a high level of civility on this Forum.

We ask you to keep this in mind if you decide to contribute to this thread. If you’re not sure that you will contribute something useful, you might want to refrain from engaging. Also, please note that you can get in touch with the Community Health team at CEA if you’d like to bring up a specific concern in a less public way. 

Examples of someone admitting an error or changing a key conclusion

Good point, thanks! I'm really impressed, seems like a very hard switch to make.

As a moderator, I think this comment is unnecessarily rude and breaks Forum norms. Please don't leave any more comments like this or you will be banned from the Forum.
