My political compass

Notes for self - from the OECD we have "Overall, measures of GDP per capita and economic growth remain critical for any assessment of wellbeing but they need to be complemented with measures of other dimensions of well-being to get a comprehensive picture of well-being." So GDP not be-all and end all, but a "critical" tool for assessing well being. From ESRC Research Centre for Analysis of Social Exclusion we have a report showing correlation between GDP and five measures of well being. I will edit the stuff about GDP - the response of GDP to disasters is a problem with the measure generally, and affects measurement of wealth as much as well being.,
