social-progress-index“Our fetish for economic growth has led us astray”

We need a better way to measure our societies, a measure based on the real things that matter to real people. Do I have enough to eat? Can I read and write? Am I safe? Do I have rights? Do I live in a society where I’m not discriminated against? Is my future and the future of my children prevented from environmental destruction? These are questions that GDP does not and cannot answer- it’s time for the Social Progress Index.
