Reviews

"Fioramonti's critique of the limitations of GDP is extremely well constructed, highly appropriate and relevant."
-Colin Crouch, University of Warwick, UK

"What governments don't track today is often far more important than what they do because what we measure changes how we behave - and how we think. And changing what we think is essential if we are to build a more sustainable economic system. Read this fascinating and well-written book - and change the way you think!"
-Graeme Maxton, Secretary General of the Club of Rome and bestselling author of The End of Progress

"An original, comprehensive and compelling analysis of the problems with GDP and how to make the world better without it."
-Robert Costanza, Australian National University and editor-in-chief of Solutions

"A well-written and persuasive analysis of how to change the world by moving beyond the current narrow focus on GDP."
-Herman Daly, founder of Ecological Economics and Emeritus Professor, University of Maryland

"comprehensive, passionate and detailed overview"
-Edoardo Campanella, International Affairs

"Prof. Fioramonti's The World After GDP is a very important study in helping us to understand the role of GDP in getting the world into its present condition, and what aspects of our understanding of GDP may help guide us through the coming era of great change. "
-Defense & Foreign Affairs
