New Research
While GDP is the most well-known, and most powerful economic indicator, it can’t tell us everything we need to know about the health of countries and societies. In fact, it can’t even tell us everything we need to know about economic performance. A new OECD report looks at progress made over the past 10 years in collecting well-being data, and in using them to inform policies. An accompanying volume, For Good Measure: Advancing Research on Well-being Metrics Beyond GDP, presents the latest findings on selected issues within the broader agenda on defining and measuring well-being.

In the context of the 2019 PAGE Ministeral Conference, CNBC will broadcast a live television debate: What makes your country wealthy? on 9 January 2019.
