THE STORY OF - THE GROSS NATIONAL HAPPINESS

“Gross National Happiness is more important than Gross National Product” – His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck, the Fourth King of Bhutan.

“GNP has long been the yardstick by which economies and politicians have been measured. Yet it fails to take into account the social and environmental costs of so-called progress. We need a new economic paradigm that recognizes the parity between the three pillars of sustainable development. Social, economic and environmental wellbeing are indivisible.”
-H.E. Mr. Ban Ki-moon
