Economics of Happiness: The New Economy

Gross National Product measures everything, except that which makes life worthwhile. — Robert Kennedy

~~~~ Good News of the Day: Many people are facing their most significant economic challenges in generations. From the hardships of unemployment to the perils of mounting debt, worry about the health of a national economy that depends on consumerism and market success dominates our conversation. But what is the economy is really for? “We’ve had enough of the official mantra: Work more, enjoy less, pollute more, eat toxic foods and suffer illnesses, all for the sake of increasing the gross domestic product. Why not learn ways to work less and enjoy it more; spend more time with our friends and families; consume, pollute, destroy and owe less; and live better, longer and more meaningfully? To do all this, we need fresh solutions,” say John De Graff and Linsa Sechrist in their article on Economics of Happiness. http://premiere.whatcounts.com/t?ctl=169D249:C3009629A010612C40A9D2146157FE8BB4B847859706E37D&
