Description

Philosopher and author Peter Singer of Princeton University talks about his book, The Life You Can Save with EconTalk host Russ Roberts. Singer argues that those of us in the developed world with a high standard of living can and should give/forgo some luxuries and donate instead to reduce poverty and suffering in poor countries. This is a wide-ranging conversation on the potential we have to make the world a better place and the practical challenges of having an impact.

You have to have been jesting by permitting this author any of your time. His only frame of reference or response to your repeated probing is himself whom he repeatedly cites as the sole authority for wanting to order my life's choices. If this episode was not intended to be released in the spirit of April Fool's Day, then the few minutes I spent listening to it was very high on the list of "How I Wasted My Life's Time".
