Seminar Series Measuring Prosperity – Session 6

Replacing GDP by 2030

Rutger Hoekstra will discuss a strategy on how to replace GDP as the key indicator of society. As part of this, he will present an interdisciplinary synthesis of the main Beyond-GDP metrics created in the last 50 years. The basis for this synthesis is a Brundtland/Stiglitz conceptual framework which distinguishes WISE: wellbeing (current), sustainability (future wellbeing), and inclusion (distribution of wellbeing, within and between countries). WISE indicators, the WISE accounting system, and WISE models will be discussed. The talk will also cover the 4-year WISE Horizons project which Rutger coordinates, and he will also discuss various relevant EC and UN processes that will help to accelerate the development of a post-growth society.
