Unlike in previous years, we are considering multiple different cause areas this year, which leaves more room for cause comparison. We think that generally, both entrepreneurs and donors have specific cause areas in mind when they attend or support our program. However, some have asked us for a sense of how the different cause areas, and more importantly, charities within them, compare. We think each area has its strengths and weaknesses and at this level, it's hard to reliably compare because many assumptions (both ethical and epistemic) need to be made.
We are considering the following four areas:
Weighted factor model framing. Each area is color-coded from strongest to weakest.
* If the limiting factor cell is red, this means that the limiting factor will be met very quickly. Green means that the factor will be hard to meet.
** If the non-captured externality cell is green, this means that the externalities are large and positive. If the cell is red, this means that externality is small.
Another way to frame this is by more specific key strengths and weaknesses
