Description

In 2018, Scotland, Iceland and New Zealand established the network of Wellbeing Economy Governments to challenge the acceptance of GDP as the ultimate measure of a country's success. In this visionary talk, First Minister of Scotland Nicola Sturgeon explains the far-reaching implications of a "well-being economy" -- which places factors like equal pay, childcare, mental health and access to green space at its heart -- and shows how this new focus could help build resolve to confront global challenges.

We the scots under value our selves more now than we have done in many a year.. We have oil rigs off our shores yet we have food banks on shore.. We invented TV! The steam combustion engine! The neumatic tyre! And Rock Star Games... How's that for GDP!

fantastic idea to change the way we view what success really means in each country. it reminds me of Busans happiness index. happiness and well being is more important than GDP because it affects everything else. including GDP.
