5.0 out of 5 stars An Alternative Vision, November 20, 2006
This review is from: Bhutan - Gross National Happiness (DVD)
At a time when Gross National Product (GNP) is less and less a measure of real progress, the attempt by the tiny kingdom of Bhutan to change its national focus to something more sustainable and sustaining - Gross National Happiness (GNH) - serves as an inspiration to the rest of the world. This wonderfully produced DVD traces an effort to create a national development policy that is based on more than production and consumption. Bhutan's Gross National Happiness includes measurements like sustainable environment, the preservation of the culture, health and education levels, as well as economics and governance. We in the West tend to think of our way of life as the only valid one, but as we experience the mounting problems that it produces, perhaps we need to look elsewhere for direction. The DVD offers an excellent insight into a fuller, more comprehensive way of organizing human interactions. It should be included in the important conversation now taking place about the future of our world.
