GLOBESCAN Survey for the BEYOND GDP Conference, European Parliament, Nov. 19th and 20th
Date:11/19/2007

These international polling results are timely as a handful of governments have started using growth measures that look beyond pure economics. The 'Green GDP', unveiled by Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao in 2004, was an effort to adjust China's economic model to take more account of its environmental consequences. Although recently suspended, the concept was popular with the Chinese population. And Bhutan's Gross National Happiness Indicators have received media attention worldwide. More recently, the British Conservative Party policy paper recommended using a beyond GDP index as a superior measure to GDP.

Further, many governments and non-government organizations have taken the initiative and devised their own indices. The best-known and emulated worldwide is the United Nation's Human Development Index, founded in 1990, which measures quality of life criteria. The World Wildlife Fund's (WWF) Living Planet Index employs data on species loss. Ecological Footprint analyses measure hectares used to sustain our lifestyles. Other similar indices include the Canadian Index of Wellbeing (CIW) and the Calvert-Henderson Quality of Life indicators, assessing national trends in the USA since 2000. Many local and city indexes are now in use worldwide, such as those in Sao Paulo, Brazil and Jacksonville, Florida since 1985.

This research across 10 countries shows public support for such broader measures of true wealth, looking beyond GDP. Clearly, international public opinion would be supportive of the goals of the Beyond GDP Conference in the European Parliament in November 2007.
