Bhutan has been spearheading the movement to replace GDP with Gross Happiness IndexAnswered by Jatinder, 08 Jan '10 04:14 pm
The 4th King of Bhutan, HM Jigme Singye Wangchuck, promulgated GNH since the beginning of his reign in 1972. Happiness of the people was made the guiding goal of development. The exact phrase Gross National Happiness is more important than Gross Domestic Product was coined by His Majesty the 4th King of Bhutan, who is the author of GNH. The fact that he said GDP needed to be channeled towards happiness in 1970s and 1980s was quite new. Since then, GNH has attracted attention, and opinion around the world has started to converge on happiness as a collective goal.Answered by atoz, 08 Jan '10 03:42 pm
