Statisticus Nic Marks vraagt zich af waarom we het succes van een land meten in productiviteit in plaats van in geluk en welzijn van haar inwoners. Hij introduceert de Happy Planet-index, die welzijn afzet tegen het gebruik van hulpbronnen (omdat een gelukkig leven niet de aarde hoeft te kosten). Welke landen staan bovenaan in de HPi? Het zal je verbazen.

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
