Overview

People who want to improve the world are, like everybody else, extremely biased. A prime example is that we tend to work on whatever cause we have stumbled upon so far, and to suppose, without deeper examination, that this cause is the most important one of all.

Cause prioritization is the attempt to go beyond this bias and to try to do better. It is the direct and systematic attempt to become more qualified about which causes we should prioritize the most.

This collection of essays aims to provide a rough framework for how we can think about cause prioritization, and provides suggestions about important causes and questions we should focus on and explore further.
