The growth of GDP remains the principal focus of attention when it comes to judging the progress of the 'wealth of nations', however other attempts have been made, most of them since the 1990's, to enlarge such a narrow vision. New indicators of development, well being, social health or ecological footprint are presented in this volume as alternative methods of re-assessing the growing gap between well being and 'more having'. They show that ongoing growth might destroy vital natural resources and has already begun this depletion.
