[Question] Might the EA community be undervaluing “meta-research on how to make progress on causes?”

Po­ten­tial ra­tio­nale: var­i­ous EA causes are hard to make progress on. Meta-re­search on how to make progress on large prob­lems like the other EA causes could be an effec­tive ac­tivity.

Do you be­lieve the EA com­mu­nity is ap­pro­pri­ately pri­ori­tiz­ing this kind of meta-re­search? Could “meta-re­search on how to make progress on causes” be an EA cause area it­self?
