About this talk



EA Global: London 2017

Prioritisation research asks lots of different types of questions (moral and empirical, theoretical and applied). First, I argue that economics can provide a structure for thinking about these prioritisation problems. This highlights that prioritisation is even more difficult than it might intuitively seem. Second, economics could benefit from being a bit more like prioritisation research. In particular, it should be more strategic in the ways it simplifies things.
