$32.00 plus tax (Refund Policy)

The policy climate surrounding issues of development and prosperity has gradually shifted during the last decade. There is growing interest in looking beyond the traditional economic measures of success, such as income, employment and gross domestic product (GDP), towards non‐economic facets of well‐being and social progress, such as health, civic engagement and happiness. Recent prominent initiatives include the French government's Commission on the Measurement of Economic Performance and Social Progress (chaired by Joseph Stiglitz, Amartya Sen and Jean‐Paul Fitoussi) and the World Health Organization's Commission on Social Determinants of Health (chaired by Michael Marmot).
