Ben Lorica’s Prosperity Index, a Tool for Measuring Economic Health as a Function of Holistic Well-Being

Ben Lorica advises looking beyond wealth to other indicators of well-being to determine economic health, mobility, and inequality. His prosperity index is intended to:

“encourage policymakers, scholars, the media, and the interested public to take a holistic view of prosperity and to understand how it is created. Prosperity extends beyond just material wealth. It includes factors such as social capital, effective governance, human rights and liberties, health, opportunity, security, and overall quality of life”
