Why is it so hard to give people money?

Michael Faye was a grad student when he saw charitable organizations sending sheep to those in need and asked — why can't we give people money directly and let them decide how to spend it? The result of that question was GiveDirectly, a non-profit that's put cash in the hands of about a million people and raised over $700 million. In this episode, recorded in-person, Michael discusses the challenges of giving people money and what he's discovered along the way.Watch this conversation on YouTube: https://youtu.be/sacfsZvrLzkFollow Michael Faye: https://twitter.com/MichaelLFaye | https://givedirectly.orgPre-Order Forward: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.com/books/667341/forward-by-andrew-yang/Follow Zach Graumann: https://twitter.com/Zach_Graumann | https://instagram.com/zachgraumann
