The Economics of Happiness

The Green Changemakers

by Saamah Abdallah In 1934, one of the original developers of the Gross National Product economic indicator (GDP) cautioned that “the welfare of a nation can scarcely be inferred from a measurement of national income.” The main problem with using GDP as a primary economic indicator is that, ultimately, it is simply the sum of all transactions in a country.

“Green Economics”: Turning Mainstream Thinking on Its Head

The Green Changemakers

That’s especially true about mainstream economics, which is based in part on ideas that made a lot of sense at some point in the last 250 years but that have outlived their time and usefulness. These ideas—such as the reliance on GDP as the key index of general wellbeing—still dominate assumptions and thinking about economic matters in the media, governments, businesses, and popular consciousness. We’ve gotten really good at economic growth. Tags: Economics Green
