GDP Does Not Measure Progress
 

 Did you know that if we all paid off our debts, the money system would collapse? The entire money supply is on loan to us from the banking system.

 "We need an economic system that allows for stability without relentless growth and consumption." says Tim Jackson, author of "Prosperity Without Growth" in this short film that offers plenty of reasonable and inspiring suggestions for change.

"Enough is Enough"
is about understanding the limits we face and offering a better economic solution that works for both people and the planet.  

Although income has tripled in the US and UK since the 1950's, people have not become any happier. Income is no longer improving people's lives in the wealthy nations, and we need a different measuring stick than GDP.

 Natalie Bennett, leader of the Green Party in the UK and Wales explains that the people who developed the measure of GDP explicitly said: "Do not use this to measure national progress. This is a gross inaccurate figure."

 Here is a well presented synopsis of What Isn't Working, and how we can change course.

 It starts with our own small choices about work, money, what we consume, what we prioritize. That is what will lead to the sea change we need.
