Measuring Progress

In this earlier article on my blog on progress and values it became clear that we need new measuring sticks to evaluate our progress, personal as well as global.

The New York Times also had an article now on how outdated it is to measure progress or well being or economic health in terms of GDP. Have a look at this NY Times article that recommends the death of the GDP.

I wouldn't mind using some simple measures such as global surface area of forests, global surface areas of ecological farm land, or global tonnage of ecologic food to chart if we as a united people walk into the right direction.
