THE SCOTTISH MORTGAGE INVESTMENT TRUST EVENT
William MacAskill: The Million Year View
- Fri 18 Aug 17:45 - 18:45
- Baillie Gifford West Court
Attend in person
Does what we do today determine the happiness or misery of trillions of people in the future? In this event, William MacAskill will discuss his recent book What We Owe the Future, and his argument for ‘longtermism’, which proposes that positively influencing the future is the moral priority of our time. MacAskill proposes that by making wise moral decisions today, we can navigate a multitude of crises – bioengineered pandemics, technological stagnation, climate change, and transformative AI – more fairly for generations to come. In conversation with David Farrier.
