Gross National Happiness Is a Profound Alternative to How Our Failing Economy Measures Progress

6

Bhutan is a living example that it is possible to develop in a different way, and is creating a caring economy based on the values of altruism, compassion and collaboration. 

It is clear to the billions still living in poverty today that the globalized capitalist economy is failing to deliver on its promise to bring prosperity to all. Establishment economists measure the progress of our economy with obscure measurements like "Gross Domestic Product" - GDP, but this actually tells us nothing about what actually matters - the health and happiness of people and planet. 

Gross National Happiness is a profound alternative that is not just economicallly sound - it is more in tune with our values as compassionate, caring human beings.
