Shifting Points of View: On Effective Altruism
Peter Singer

How can we do the most good? Peter Singer, often described as the world’s most influential living philosopher, presents a challenging new movement in the search for an ethical life. Effective altruism requires a rigorously unsentimental view of charitable giving, urging that a substantial proportion of our money or time should be donated to the organisations that will do the most good with those resources, rather than to those that tug the heartstrings.

Chaired by Eric Crampton, Head of Research with The New Zealand Initiative and Adjunct Senior Fellow in Economics and Finance at the University of Canterbury.
