1934 Simon Kuznets proposed GDP to the US Congress. A measure for measuring the progress of nation. He called it Gross Domestic Product (GDP).
1934 another event took place. Joseph Schumpeter thought about economic progress and came to the conclusion, that all progress has one common base: Creative Destruction (of old thoughts and solutions).
Looking at the GDP as an artificial product of mind restricting the progress to be measured in $-Units - and knowing, that intangibles and non-$-Measures are driving more and more the wealth of enterprises and nations - it is somehow logic that non-$-Indicators should also been taken into the decision making. If one intends to make sustainable decisions.
And here it is.
The Social Progress Imperative. A Framework and Indicator System that deals only with metrics that impacts what nature and people matters.
Because GDP-programmed thinkers may be somehow lost in a new framework we propose a combination of GDP and SPI Value metric - a Social and Economic Value Profile.
Take the indicators, put them into the interactive Excel below of this page and see and compare the 2D-Progress of several nations.
