From Guardian: “Nic Marks, founder of the Centre for Wellbeing, talks about the challenges of the global economic system. Marks created the Happy Planet Index to measure global wellbeing and environmental impact, which showed that the world’s wealthiest countries weren’t happier. We are servants to the system, rather than its masters, Marks says. Instead of measuring outputs in terms of economic growth, it should be the quality of people’s experience of life.”
