This is where I write whatever I feel like writing, hopefully with a bias towards things that are important and/or interesting to others:

Philosophy, economics, effective altruism, books, half-baked ideas, and more. The “top” tab for the posts people find most interesting. I’m not too good at guessing which ones those will be. Some of my personal favorites (loosely in order) are:

  1. Kids are people too

  2. The topic is not the content

  3. Most Ivy-smart students aren't at Ivy-tier schools

  4. On suffering

  5. Suffering-focused total utilitarianism [kinda technical]

  6. A progressive-ish case against the minimum wage

  7. Deficits don’t matter, spending does

  8. Direct effects matter!
