What’s not to like about economic growth, you might ask? Well, quite a lot, it turns out, once we begin to examine how GDP and other measures of the economy are constructed, and once we see what they leave out (and perhaps just as troubling, what they leave in). Stephen Pimpare speaks with David Pilling about his new book, The Growth Delusion: Wealth, Poverty, and the Well-Being of Nations, which helps us understand the problems with how we typically evaluate national economies and offers some alternative approaches even though each of those options presents their own challenges.
