Your Call 092109 Is GDP a good method to measure economic progress?

Is GDP a good method to measure economic progress? On the next Your Call we'll have a conversation about gross national product or GDP, which a number of economists, psychologists and sociologists have argued to be an imprecise measurement of economic performance. Is it time to go beyond GPD? Join us live at 11:00 or drop us an email at feedback@yourcallradio.org. What would the alternative to GDP look like? It's Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:
Sarah Burd-Sharps, co-director of American Human Development Project.

Richard Wilkinson, an economic historian and social epidemiologist. He is Professor Emeritus at the University of Nottingham Medical School and Honorary Professor at University College London.

Fantastic show. This is an important conversation to get beyond our progressive central coast. Perhaps you can get your guests on Glenn Beck?
