Der Statistiker Nic Marks fragt sich, warum wir den Erfolg einer Nation an ihrer Produktivität messen — anstatt am Glück und Wohlbefinden ihres Volkes. Er stellt den Happy Planet Index vor, der das nationale Wohlbefinden anhand der Ressourcennutzung bemisst (denn ein glückliches Leben muss nicht die Welt kosten). Welche Länder rangieren beim HPI ganz oben? Sie werden überrascht sein.

Happiness researcher
Nic Marks gathers evidence about what makes us happy, and uses it to promote policy that puts the well-being of people and the planet first. He's the founder of the Centre for Well-Being at the UK think tank New Economics Foundation (NEF). Full bio
