Gross Domestic Product accounts for all the public expenditures as “debt” while ignoring the value of the assets they created. If GDP were to be corrected by including the missing asset account, these debt-to-GDP ratios would be cut by up to 50% — with a few keystrokes!

Join ecological economist and futurist, Hazel Henderson, in a 60 minutes dialogue about how the UN SDGs can and should replace GDP as the basis for valuing society leading to an economy based on planetary protection and human wellbeing. Hazel is joined by author and social innovator, Vicki Robin
