Democracy and the Common Good: Alternatives to GDP

Democracy and the Common Good: Alternatives to GDP
Wednesday 28th November 2018, 6:45pm-8:30pm
OBE Chapel, St Paul's Cathedral, St Paul's Churchyard, London, EC4M 8AD

What is Growth, and how do we measure it?

The journey from poverty to prosperity is widely measured by and credited to the growth in a country's GDP. But what if there is more to consider? What about the needs which this doesn't address - a healthy family life, civic participation, and freedom from discrimination or exploitation?

Using Christian Aid's An Unquenchable Thirst report, St Paul's Institute and Christian Aid will bring together a panel of experts in economics, business, social metrics and theology to discuss ways to track, measure and celebrate human flourishing.

Speakers include:

  • Professor Jagjit Chadha, National Institute for Economic and Social Research (NIESR)
  • Amanda Mukwashi, Christian Aid
  • Danny Kruger, Expert Adviser on Civil Society, HM Government
  • Cal Baliey, SALT Network
  • Helen Howe, SALT Network (convenor)
