  1. Chris,

    I’m pretty disappointed about your link to GiveWell’s microfinance review. It is definitely not the solution to poverty but their review is both misinformed and cursory. They’ve done next to nothing to acquaint themselves with the real status of social impact measurement, credit and lending methodology, and incentives in the field leading to some spurious conclusions (in my own opinion).

    Best,
    Ben

  2. The link to your shared items feed is broken; it links to the RSS icon. (I found the feed anyhow and look forward to reading it.)
