Main Information
Title Report of the Commission on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress
Description The Commission on the measurement of economic performance and social progress was created in 2008 as an initiative of the government of France in order to identify the limits of GDP as an indicator of economic performance and social progress, to consider additional information required for the production of a more relevant picture, to discuss how to present this information in the most appropriate way, and to check the feasibility of implementing additional measurement. Composed of economists of global reputation, the commission was chaired by Professor Joseph E. Stiglitz, Columbia University, with Professor Amartya Sen, Harvard University, acting as adviser to the chair. The final report of the commission addresses issues of global relevance, thus providing a template for every interested country or group of countries. The website provides additional information on the work and compositions of the commission, and gives access to a number of additional working documents.
