Title: The Quest for Additionality
Abstract: Many people aim to make the world a better place by spending their money in certain ways. The school of “effective altruism” teaches that, if one donates one’s money wisely, one can have a positive impact. Currently, many people want to make us believe that if one invests one’s money wisely, one will also have a positive impact. I argue that, for virtually everybody, this latter promise cannot come true.
