This is great, Mel. As a city group organiser, I can relate to "People tend to come and go". It was a wild wild west for us at EA Lagos when many members of our community emigrated circa 2019-21 due to worsening performance of the Nigerian economy.
yes, i agree both can be true.
A soaring tribute to the constraints we face in the material world. We can still do much much more.
This series has been helpful in developing a curriculum for the EA Lagos Introductory Program. The articles are also well-referenced which is a big plus as I'm trying to put the ideas in a relatable context for my audience.
Distilling these to relatable content isn't easy but I know my audience and don't want to be guilty of expecting short inferential distances.
I agree. Literally felt the ebb and flow of history in that piece.
This strikes right at the heart of trolleyology for me. And in some cases, seems like a scarcity problem rather than a moral problem.
I do not think this will apply to grantees. I think the people most liable are the members of the team running the FTX Fund at CEA. They would have to prove that they have no knowledge of the fraud, if the verdict so says.
You're most likely right due to the precedents you stated here. I wouldn't rule out a clawback either because the government has to be able to restore/maintain trust in the system.
It's why a thorough audit of EA's finance is in order. Any auditor among us could reach out to CEA to help with this.
My suggestion is that, at this point, the CEA should have a detailed account of the funds from FTX and where they went to. Sterilise the FTX Future Fund from other EA funding. Why? Because the regulatory drag net will get here and when it does, we want to be prepared.
