Managing Without Growth

Author(s): 
Peter Victor Managing Without Growth

Peter Victor challenges the priority that rich countries continue to give to economic growth as an over-arching objective of economic policy. The challenge is based on a critical analysis of the literature on environmental and resource limits to growth, on the disconnect between higher incomes and happiness, and on the failure of economic growth to meet other key economic, social and environmental policy objectives.

GDP and beyond: Measuring progress in a changing world

Author(s): 
Commission of the European Communities

Introduction:

Gross Domestic Product (GDP) is the best known measure of macro-economic activity. Developed in the 1930s, GDP has become a standard benchmark used by policy-makers throughout the world and is widely used in public debates. GDP aggregates the value added of all money-based economic activities. It is based on a clear methodology that allows
comparisons to be made over time and between countries and regions.
