Oxide with Paige Ruane – 4/29/17

In this episode, our guests awaken us to our misguided reliance on the GDP, the Gross Domestic Product, an inadequate guide that has deceived us about our progress and wellbeing. They are on a mission to find alternatives that will better track and direct us toward a healthy future. Eric Zencey, a professor and a fellow at the Gund Center for Ecological Economics, introduces the Genuine Progress Indicator to the state of Vermont. And Julia Kim takes us to Bhutan, where she designs programs to measure and promote happiness in communities around the world.
