Nic Marks – The Happy Planet Index

Statistician Nic Marks asks why we measure a nation’s success by its productivity — instead of by the happiness and well-being of its people. He introduces the Happy Planet Index, which tracks national well-being against resource use (because a happy life doesn’t have to cost the earth). Which countries rank highest in the HPI? You might be surprised.

One of the modules I took for my MSc in Holistic Science was “The Economics of Happiness” and Nic came along for a couple of days to teach us about the Happy Planet Index.  For more information seeThe Happy Planet Index
