I think people set up the distinction between acting for the good of others and acting to benefit yourself as much starker than it really is ... you can do both.

William MacAskill


Many of us worry about money but end up spending it on non-essential goods that don't make us happier.

What if there were a different way of thinking about money that could not only improve our mental health and save lives?

On the Ten Percent Happier podcast, former ABC news anchor Dan Harris investigates methods for improving personal wellbeing.

In this October 2022 episode, Harris interviews William MacAskill, an associate professor of philosophy at the University of Oxford and co-founder of the effective altruism movement and the Giving What We Can charitable donation community.

In his conversation with Harris, MacAskill explains how effective altruism can benefit us and the world, and walks us through how to start contributing.
