GDP and Well-being: Toward more holistic measures of Namibia's progress


Progress Namibia - GDP and Well-being: Toward more holistic measures of Namibia's progress
30 March 2016

As part of our 'For Progress Namibia' Project that is partnered with #livesmatter, we have at last published our study on well-being indicators - towards more holistic measures of Namibia's success and progress - in the Journal of Social Change. The study basically questions the validity of GDP as a proxy for human life quality in the light of global as well as national issues. We are working on finding an alternative economic paradigm that values human lives over profit, and reiterates that we should live in a society where our value is linked to our life-support systems, our health, and our happiness, as well as our community unity. To read the full study, find it here.
