The tiny kingdom of Bhutan was in the papers again yesterday for the concept of gross national happiness, a measure concocted by its former king. It's a philosophy that's shaping up to be an antidote to pretty much the rest of the world's "complete dedication to economic development"—a devotion that's unspooling into a tangled economic mess nowadays. Bhutan's position is revolutionary. According to the article, "Under a new Constitution adopted last year, government programs — from agriculture to transportation to foreign trade — must be judged not by the economic benefits they may offer but by the happiness they produce." Imagine a world where the goal is to make everyone happy, not just the monied or powerful few.
