Meaningful Indicators

Joesph Stiglitz - Nobel Prize winner, Columbia economics professor, and chairman of the Commission on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress - elaborates on the need for more useful and explanatory "statistical information about the economy and society."

The Commission was established by French President Nicolas Sarkozy due to his dissatisfaction with our current indicators.

Their first report will be released September 14.
