  • Why it makes sense to pick one charity

    July 14th, 2010
    ea, money
    In discussion about my posts on organic food it was pointed out that my argument depends on the idea that one should only give to one charity. Because I believe that oxfam would do more good with my money than a make food organic charity, I claim that I (and others) should give money only to oxfam and not the MFO-charity.

    The "one charity" argument makes a lot of sense to me: if my best estimate of how much good oxfam will do with my money is substantially greater than the amount of good some other charity will do, why should I give to that other charity when I could be more effective by giving to oxfam? More detailed arguments on this point are also out there:

    Update 2013-02-26: I've expanded on this some.
