LOL "0% of respondents heard about EA or EA-adjacent ideas before age 2."
This is super helpful, thank you Michael!
Thanks for highlighting the potential of small donors to support political candidates and campaigns. In the US, if you expect to take the standard deduction on your taxes, you have a fantastic opportunity to leverage your voice in the democratic process.
“There’s a relatively small amount of funding towards policy advocacy and legislative change, compared to what I expected, approximately 4.5% average across all three years.“
Could you elaborate on why you were expecting more?
I love this analysis, thanks for taking the time to put it together. I would not have expected it to be so lopsided toward corporate campaigns either.
Great analysis. Many of these conclusions were not intuitive.
For those looking to advance climate solutions, I'll plug Citizens' Climate Lobby which advocates for a price on carbon in Congress. I love political advocacy because it can be done with zero cost (ie writing to/lobbying your elected officials), and is a powerful tool for collective action.
I love this. I'm definitely excited to see EAs thinking about effective policy.
