National accounts of wellbeing

Bringing real wealth onto the balance sheet


National Accounts of Wellbeing presents a radical, robust proposal to guide the direction of modern societies and the lives of people who live in them.

It demonstrates why national governments should directly measure people’s subjective well-being: their experiences, feelings and perceptions of how their lives are going. It calls for these measures to be collected on a regular, systematic basis and published as National Accounts of Wellbeing. The measures are needed because the economic indicators which governments currently rely on tell us little about the relative success or failure of countries in supporting a good life for their citizens.
