I currently do not. My current thought is that I have no idea where the money is going, and if the person is actually poor (for example, I live in Oakland and there are a bunch of Romani women walking around our trains with sleeping babies, aggressively panhandling, who actually live fairly good, middle-class lives in a local suburb).
While most beggars are probably very poor, there are beggars in less affluent countries who are probably worse off.
On the flip side of that, maybe the beggars in less affluent countries are happier, because happiness stems more from comparison with those around you than actual means?
I also feel like giving money might further encourage begging, which is undesirable social behavior.
On the flip side, beggars being around might encourage more people to think about charity in general.
But on the flip side of that, if people give them money, they might give less money to effective charities because of moral licensing.
TELL ME HOW TO FEEL, OH GREAT WIZARDS OF EA.
