Is Your Country One of the Happiest in the World?

Measuring Happiness Instead of Productivity

Robert F. Kennedy asked: Why does Gross National Product “measure everything…except that which makes life worthwhile?”  We all want to be happy, but happiness (unlike how much ‘stuff’ we have) is rarely measured directly.

Statistician Nic Marks is working to change that. In this video, he introduces the Happy Planet Index (HPI), which tracks national well-being against resource use–because a happy life doesn’t have to cost the earth.  Discover which countries rank highest in the HPI. You might be surprised.
