Hazel Henderson presented at the Sustainable Brands 2010 conference in Monterrey, California, on Re-Defining the Metrics of Success: The Emerging Measures of Qualitative Growth, presenting some of her newest thinking on why GDP serves poorly as the ultimate measure of progress. In this video of her presentation, she offers a look at some of the significant initiatives taking place to define what comes next in measuring qualitative growth. The presentation builds on the Calvert-Henderson Quality of Life Indicators which she co-developed with the Calvert Group and on her more recent work with Fritjof Capra.
