Some food for thought relating to GDP: There is discussion amongst economists of adding a "happiness" variable to create a Gross National Happiness (GNH) index. I believe it is intended to capture life expectancy, some sort of ecological/environmental factors, and retool the wages/income variables to reflect a "keeping up with the Jones" psyche. No joke. Bhutan already does it. I'll try and find a suitable article on this.
The road block with this index is finding constantly measureable and objective variables.
