Statistikern Nic Marks frågar sig varför vi mäter en nations framgång via dess produktivitet — istället för via lyckan och välmåendet hos dess befolkning. Han introducerar "The Happy Planet Index" (Lyckliga Planetens Index), som räknar befolkningens välmående mot summan resurser som används (eftersom ett lyckligt liv inte behöver kosta på jorden). Vilket land rankas högst enligt HPI? Du kommer kanske bli förvånad.

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
