How Useful is GDP for measuring living standards?
Just in time for our class! The Economist is currently running an online debate about the usefulness of GDP statistics. Read through the two sides of the debate (you don't have to read all the comments) and prepare a few ideas for a comment to post on The Economist Web site. We will put together a few group comments to post on Monday, so as not to overwhelm the site with our positions.
Your group comments should also be posted here on this blog so I can find them easily for marking purposes.
