If only New Liebor understood GNH instead of GDP…

Gross National Happiness Website

"Happiness is a subjectively felt public good. Happiness is a public good, as all human beings value it. Hence, the government of Bhutan takes the view that it cannot be left exclusively to private individual devices and strivings. If a government’s policy framework, and thus a nation’s macro-conditions, is adverse to happiness, happiness will fail as a collective goal. Any government concerned with happiness must create conducive conditions for happiness in which individual strivings can succeed. "

    Ironically Bhutan’s subjects won’t be able to access the website – the vast majority of them don’t even have access to a telephone line.

    It’s a fascinating country, I love reading about it.
