“and if saving a life costs $8,000 dollars, then you’d be saving 125 lives in expectation every day! “ If saving a life costs $8,000 dollars, donating $1b to Biden is killing 125,000 people That said, it’s a good scam “give me all your money because I will use it for *good* things”; in reality most fortunes have been given away to far worthier causes than what supposedly EA might be (universities, libraries, hospitals were all funded this way) So prediction: yes, more people will choose to “identify” as effective altruists because it’s good for business and status both

10 such billionaires is a lot! ... or so I thought until I just checked, apparently there are 2.7k billioinaires, ~500 new ones minted in 2021 alone https://worldpopulationreview.com/country-rankings/billionaires-by-country
