As the world economy changes, so too must the tools used to measure it. GDP is a telling example, capturing economic growth and employment but not the quality of human life or of the environment. Economists and public policy experts Natalie Pierce, Peter Vanham, Diane Coyle and Girol Karacaoglu look at the big picture in this instructive episode of the World Economic Forum’s Stakeholder Capitalism podcast. Their enlightening discussion showcases how some countries are tackling the messy problem of economic measurement.
