Is wellbeing the new GDP?

If you’ve been listening to the Weekly Economics Podcast for a while, you’ll know that we think there’s much more to economics than GDP. But it still dominates the way politicians and much of the press talk about the economy. Now though, there are lots of new proposals for measuring what counts. So what should replace GDP? And how would it change society? That’s our big question today, that we're discussing with Guardian economics correspondent Richard Partington and NEF fellow Annie Quick. Enjoying the show?
