Summary:image“Real progress cannot be measured by money alone. We must ensure that economic growth contributes to our quality of life, rather than degrading it.” (Tony Blair) This report seeks to stimulate debate on how we define prosperity and addresses the inadequacies of standard definitions of Gross Domestic Product and economic growth as yardsticks for wellbeing.
