There must be a better way to measure the growth of prosperity than #GDP !

ebbf - ethical business building the future & IEF - International Environment Forum members collaborated on the "Global Solidarity Accounting" project to identify ways to reset how governments account for the well-being of their populations and of their economic systems.

This Al Jazeera Media Network article by Maxwell Gomera talks about one such alternative and offers some insightful approaches to rectify the imbalances of systems currently in use.

"Tackling #poverty can start with embracing the GDP of the poor"
