Measuring what matters: looking beyond GDP

Global concerns such as climate change, resource depletion, inequality, poverty, and health are pressing decision-makers to move away from a narrow focus on Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as a single metric to measure economic success and citizens’ wellbeing. However, there is a lack of consensus on how to achieve this. Did you miss the live discussion between Commissioner for Economy Paolo Gentiloni and youth representatives from across Europe? Don’t worry, you can watch the recorded version by accessing the European Commission's Streaming Service and DG ECFIN’s Twitter profile.
