BGST Conference – More than Money: Economic Success as Well-Being

April 7 @ 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm

S$50
SYNOPSIS

What if economic policies, businesses and social enterprises could orientate themselves primarily towards improving the well-being of people, society and the environment? What if well-being could become the highest aspiration of societies? What if accounting and performance measurement could include intangible assets like relationships, trust or sustainability? Mark believes that each of these is possible. Drawing from his forthcoming book, An Economy of Well-Being (April 27, 2018), Mark will lay out alternatives that could drastically change how we understand and measure economic prosperity and success.

SPEAKER
