About the Authors
  • Economic production indicators such as gross domestic product (GDP) and the Human Development Index (HDI) fail to reflect the state of natural resources or ecological conditions and both focus exclusively on the short term. The Inclusive Wealth Report 2014 is the second book in an important biennial series that provides a new framework for measuring the inclusive wealth of nations. It provides an overview of how the capital asset components of inclusive wealth evolved between 1990 and 2010, and analyses the meaning of these trends for sustainability. While the asset base studied is largely unchanged from the 2012 report, the country sample has been expanded from 20 to 140 nations and the focus has shifted from natural to human capital. This report offers a wealth of information for researchers and policy-makers, identifying key gaps in data and knowledge, and suggesting specific needs for future research.

    • Provides a new framework for measuring the inclusive wealth of nations, making a major contribution to environmental debate and policy
    • Country sample expanded from 20 to 140 countries, giving a more complete, global assessment of inclusive wealth
    • Articles written by the top people in the field, including Kenneth Arrow and Partha Dasgupta
