(p.1) Chapter 1 A Wealth of Indicators
Beyond GDP

Marc Fleurbaey

Oxford University Press

This chapter provides an overview of the alternative indicators that are already available and recalls the institutional and historical context in which they have been produced. It sets the stage for the analysis of the foundations and possible future developments to which the bulk of this book is devoted. The chapter focuses on four main categories: composite indicators of the Human Development Index (HDI) type; monetary or quasi-monetary indicators of the “corrected GDP” type in the Nordhaus and Tobin’s tradition; synthetic sustainability indicators; and dashboards.

Keywords:   composite indicators, human development index, monetary indicators, GDP, synthetic sustainability indicators, dashboards
