In this book, the author argues that we need to move away
from narrowly useful metrics such as gross domestic
product and instead use broader ones that aim at well-
being, resilience, and sustainability. He begins by
taking stock of the booming field of well-being and
sustainability indicators, and explains the insights that
the best of these can offer. He then shows how these
indicators can be used to develop new policies, from the
local to the global.
