[Note: I am planning to expand this section on attention scarcity by providing more concrete numbers, such as how many people are currently working globally on Asteroid detection and deflection.]

Attention (Edit this file)

I was hoping to read more about why attention scarcity happens and a numerical argument for whether it can actually be overcome. My first thoughts on the issue are pessimistic. For example, how many people are actually successful at quitting smoking? An argument that overcomes these considerations would be a powerful frame of reference to establish before going into proposing solutions.

Additionally, this section reminded me of this old PG essay: http://paulgraham.com/addiction.html
