Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $75,000 to Jason Crawford to continue his work on The Roots of Progress. The Roots of Progress attempts to explain the mechanisms by which historical progress occurred, which could improve public debates about how to best prioritize work across different causes in order to do as much good as possible.
