I probably should have put this in the Etc. forum, but it does relate to politics. Recently, I read that Bhutan doesn't bother with fussing about a GNP (gross national product) number to assess the quality of life enjoyed by their economic success. Instead, they sample their citizens regarding their GHI (general happiness index). It's a simple scale of 1 (feeling really bad) to 10 (feeling really good). The average Bhutanese makes the equivalent of about $54 US a year. If the average GHI is low (say, around 5 or 6) the government begins to pay attention and attempts to help raise that number. This all sounds a Hell of a lot more valuable to me than a particular country's imports/exports. So, what's your GHI? Of course, it varies from day to day, but usually not by much. I'm cruising along at about a solid 8 today. You?
