  • ""This volume makes a convincing case that, in economic development as in other human pursuits, you get what you measure. It presents the first-ever direct estimates of changes in comprehensive national wealth, which can help identify policies for achieving sustained improvements in human well-being. Though topical, with coverage of such issues as the contribution of human capital to China's explosive economic growth, greenhouse gas accounting, and the role of governance in avoiding a resource course, it will become more valuable with time as researchers explore the landmark data it has painstakingly compiled. -- Book Jacket."
