Jon Hall, HDRO, UNDP

Happiness & Human Development … Common Origins

“Our metrics are important not just because they tell us how we are doing but because they serve as guides in policy-making…. GDP measures the busy-ness of our economy. But the big question is whether we are busy doing the right things. Making your economy grow more will not necessarily get you the things that people really want.

Our preoccupation with GDP makes it difficult for politicians to back policies that are good for society and for the environment but which might not result in an increase in GDP..”

Joseph Stiglitz

Nobel Laureate

“A grumbling rich man may well be less happy than a contented peasant, but he does have a higher standard of living than that peasant”

Amartya Sen
