Redefining Well-Being: Interview With John Fullerton, Part Two

From Pablo Solon 14/2/13
Solving the systemic crisis of climate change means redefining well-being
2 April 2012

We are in the process of an evolutionary if not revolutionary change in how we structure the economy. We’re going to need to redefine well-being. There have been people working on alternatives to GDP for twenty years now. “uneconomic growth.” We need to shift into growing well-being instead of material throughput. When people are adolescents, they’re physically growing. When they mature, they read books, go to yoga, increasing their growth in ways that don’t mean physical consumption. We’re on the proverbial rat race, and it’s not buying anyone well-being and happiness. There’s a hopeful scenario in front of us.
